Tip Top Poultry, Inc., along with the United States Department of Agricultures Food Safety and Inspection Service, has announced a recall of more than 135,000 pounds of fully cooked chicken products.
The recall was issued due to potential listeria contamination.
The chicken is frozen, diced and was produced on Jan. 21, 2019, which is also the pack date on the labels, according to the FSIS.
The label also has establishment number P-17453 in the USDA mark of inspection on the case.
The chicken was sent to hotels, restaurants and institutions across the country.
Listeria can cause listeriosis that can affect older adults, people with weakened immune systems, pregnant woman and newborns.
It can cause gastrointestinal issues, fever, muscle aches, confusion, headaches and convulsions, government officials said.
Anyone who has the affected products in their freezers is being instructed not to use them and either throw the food away or return it to the place from where it was purchased.
