21 August, 2019

The food recall warning issued on August, 18, 2019 has been updated to include additional product information. This additional information was identified during the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA) food safety investigation. Reuven International Ltd is recalling Reuven International Ltd brand Natural Proportion Cooked Chicken Meat (Diced) and Sysco brand Natural Proportions Cooked Shredded Chicken from the marketplace due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. Consumers should not consume and distributors, retailers and food service establishments such as hotels, restaurants, cafeterias, hospitals and nursing homes should not sell or use the recalled products.
Tip Top Poultry of Rockmart, Georgia (USA), is recalling about 135,810 pounds of fully cooked chicken products because they may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency notified FSIS on August 17, 2019, that a sample of this company’s product was confirmed positive for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.
