May 26, 2021 — Around 130,000 pounds of chicken were recalled due to a risk of Listeria, including chicken in the “Farmers to Families Food Box” in Florida.
The USDA posted a health alert for 130,000 pounds of chicken that may contain Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.
The frozen, fully-cooked, diced chicken products were packed on January 25 and 26, 2021, and March 23 and 24, 2021. They were distributed by Big Daddy Foods, Inc., a firm in Houston, Texas.
The chicken was also distributed to consumers at food banks in Florida through the USDA Farmers to Families Food Box program from February 25 to March 1, 2021, and March 29 to April 8, 2021.
- 4-pound plastic bags containing “FULLY COOKED CHICKEN MEAT three-quarters DICED WHITE” with code 13530, establishment number P-18237, and pack dates of “01/25/2021” and “01/26/2021.”
- 4-pound plastic bags containing “FULLY COOKED CHICKEN MEAT DARK/WHITE three-quarters DICED” with code 16598, establishment number P-45638, and pack dates “24/MAR/2021” and “23/MAR/2021.”
The recall was issued after inspectors noticed that chicken that may have been contaminated with Listeria was repackaged without being re-cooked to kill the bacteria. No illnesses were reported.
