Recall Expands for Chicken Sold at Aldi, Target and Great Harvest
The USDA is expanding their recall from two weeks ago over more, potentially deadly, listeria concerns.
According to the USDA's announcement on Sept. 28, Tip Top Poultry, Inc., a company based out of Georgia, recalled ready-to-eat poultry products “that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes."
The recall is listed as a “Class I Recall,” which means there “is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death,” according to the USDA.
The items announced in the recall are frozen cooked, diced and shredded products that were produced between Jan. 21 and Sept. 24 and have product codes ranging from:
10000 - 19999
70000 - 79999
On Tuesday (10/8), the USDA announced;
...the recalled ready-to-eat chicken products were used in products not originally covered by the recall. Some of those products may have been served from the deli counter in grocery stores.
Stores in Illinois where these products were sold include Great Harvest Bread Company, and Aldi, according to mystateline.com. The original recall included products sold at Target and Trader Joe’s.
