More than 130,000 pounds of frozen chicken products are being recalled over fears that they may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issued a recall notice for the frozen, fully cooked, diced chicken items that were packaged on Jan. 25, 2021; Jan. 26, 2021; March 23, 2021; and March 24, 2021.

The problem was first discovered through a routine FSIS inspection in which officials "observed products requiring recooking due to possible Lm contamination had been repackaged without being recooked," the agency said.
After a subsequent investigation, the agency concluded that other affected products "had been further distributed in commerce."
