Missouri-based Tyson Foods, Inc. issued a recall for approximately 8.4 million pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced over the Fourth of July weekend.

The frozen, fully cooked chicken products were produced between Dec. 26, 2020 and April 13, 2021.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. P-7089” on the product bag or inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped nationwide to retailers and institutions, including hospitals, nursing facilities, restaurants, schools and Department of Defense locations, according to the USDA.

This recall involves some Tyson Foods products and certain H-E-B brand products sold at H-E-B stores and the South Flo Pizza locations in Texas.

The affected H-E-B Meal Simple items were produced from Jan. 28, 2021 – July 4, 2021. The affected South Flo Pizza items were produced from Jan. 13, 2021 – July 4, 2021.
