Tyson Foods recalls chicken products due to Salmonella contamination

tyson chickenCBS News reported on January 13 that Tyson Foods Inc. has announced a recall of approximately 33,840 pounds of chicken products due to the possibility of Salmonella bacteria contamination.

Tyson Foods Inc. is voluntarily recalling its mechanically separated chicken products after the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and the company found that seven people have suffered an infection from a strain of Salmonella in a Tennessee correctional facility.

The FSIS stated that the products bear an establishment number of P-13556, found inside the Department of Agriculture’s inspection mark. The recalled products were manufactured between November 29 and December 5, and have been available for institutional use throughout the country.

If you believe your health has been affected due to contaminated food products such as this, you may consider filing a product liability lawsuit to hold the manufacturer accountable for all the consequences you have subsequently faced.
