With the possibility of listeria contamination, Tyson Foods recalled about 8.5 million pounds of chicken products, according to the company and USDA.
Brands in the recall include Tyson and privately labeled products which include Little Caesars, Marco’s Pizza and Jet’s Pizza.
As the products were chipped nationwide to retailers and institutions – schools, hospitals, nursing facilities and restaurants – the CDC said these products may be linked to the listeria outbreak which caused three people to become sick and one death.
“We’re committed to providing safe, healthy food that people rely on every day. We are taking this precautionary step out of an abundance of caution and in keeping with our commitment to safety,” said Scott Brooks, senior vice president, food safety and quality assurance with Tyson Foods.
For questions and concerns about the recall, call or text 1-855-382-3101 – customer service reps will be available from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday-Friday.
