USDA: Cooked Chickens Recalled

By  | 

The announcement said the potential problem was discovered when a private laboratory reported a positive result for listeria monocytogenes.

The recall by KD Acquisitions covers 14 pound boxes of "Tyson, Fully Cooked Chicken Breast Filet Fritters with Rib Meat, 3806'' and 20 pound boxes of "Spare Time, Fully Cooked, Chicken Breast Fillet Fritters with Rib Meat, 3806.''

The chicken was produced on July 13 and distributed to warehouses in Georgia and Arkansas.

The USDA said there had been no reports of illness associated with consumption of the chicken products.

Health officials say listeriosis, caused by eating listeria-tainted food, results in a higher rate of hospitalization than any other food borne illness.

Pregnant women, the elderly and those with weak immune systems are at the highest risk.
