Tyson Foods issues recall of chicken products after incidents of Salmonella infection

Tyson Foods Inc. has announced a voluntary recall of its mechanically separated chicken products following cases of Salmonella infection, a report from CBS News revealed on Monday, January 13.

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the manufacturer announced the recall of about 33,840 pounds of chicken products after they received a report of Salmonella infection involving seven people at a corrections facility in Tennessee last month.

The FSIS stated that the products being recalled are labeled with P-13556 as its establishment number and the label can be located inside USDA’s inspection mark. The products, which were manufactured last year from November 29 to December 5, were only available for institutional use.

Defective food products pose great dangers to one’s health, finances, and even life.
