USDA expands Tyson frozen chicken recall to include some deli products

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has expanded its recall of the Tyson Foods frozen chicken saying some of the products may have been sold from deli counters in retail stores.

The USDA said on Tuesday that the affected products could have a different establishment number than what was originally released.

That included products with the establishment number P-45710, which was used in Circle K Caesar Salad and Country Style Chef Salad with best by dates between June 27 and July 3.

Arkansas-based Tyson Foods had recalled more than 8.5 million pounds of frozen, fully cooked chicken for a possible Listeria contamination.

Tyson said the products came from a plant out of Dexter, Missouri.

It was distributed to foodservice and retails customers nationwide, including Casey's General Store, Marco's Pizza, and Little Caesars.

Officials said that affected retail packages has the establishment code P-7089.

The CDC says that so far three people had been hospitalized and one person has died across two states, which are Texas and Delaware.

Eating products contaminated with Listeria can cause flu-like symptoms and can be harmful to people older than 65, pregnant, or have a weakened immune system.
