TN jail illness linked to recalled Tyson chicken products

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) – Tyson Foods is recalling nearly 34,000 pounds of mechanically separated chicken products that may be contaminated with a strain of salmonella.

The chicken has been linked to illnesses at a Bradley County, Tenn. jail, where seven people got sick and two were hospitalized.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the product was not sold in retail stores, but manufactured in Missouri for institutional use. It was produced on October 11 and shipped nationwide.
