Tip Top Poultry is recalling an undetermined amount of ready-to-eat (RTE) poultry products that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes. The frozen cooked, diced, or shredded, RTE chicken products were produced between Jan. 21, 2019 and Sept. 24, 2019, with product codes ranging from 10000 to 19999 and 70000 to 79999. The products subject to recall bear establishment number “Est. P-17453” inside the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) mark of inspection. These items were shipped to institutions nationwide in the United States and Canada.
The problem was discovered when the firm notified the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) that multiple samples of product produced by Tip Top Poultry confirmed positive for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes after being tested in Canada. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
