WASHINGTON, DC - The United States Department of Agriculture has released an update on a recall warning that was originally issued on September 28th, due to newly obtained information regarding a possible contamination incident.

On September 28th, Tip Top Poultry Incorporated, a manufacturer of ready-to-eat poultry products, recalled an undetermined amount of products from stores that may have been contaminated with the bacterium Listeria Monocytogenes. The recall affected a number of frozen cooked, diced, or shredded chicken products that were released between January and September of 2019. The products in question have an establishment number "Est. P-17453" on the packaging inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The updated notice also included information that these products may have been used in additional products or served over-the-counter at grocery store delis.

Consuming food contaminated with this strain of bacterium can cause listeriosis, a condition that causes fevers, muscle aches, headaches, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions, sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other symptoms. Listeriosis can be treated with antibiotics, and those affected should seek medical care.
