Tip Top Poultry is recalling nine months of cooked poultry products that were distributed under a variety of brand names including Butterball, Perdue, Sysco, West Creek and GFS to institutions nationwide because they may be contaminated with Listeria. The Rockmart, GA-based company said in its announcement that at the time of the recall there had been no confirmed illness reported in association with the recalled products.
The problem was discovered by Canadian health officials who are conducting a food safety investigation. Three weeks ago, the company issued a Listeria recall for cooked chicken products produced on January 21, 2019, after Canadian health officials investigating a Listeria outbreak with illnesses reported in Canada and the U.S. found Listeria is a sample of chicken produced on that date.
On September 28, 2019, Tip Top announced that it had been notified by health officials in Canada that multiple samples of its chicken had tested positive for Listeria and it was recalling all cooked, ready-to-eat chicken products it had produced between January 21, 2019, and September 24, 2019. The recalled products have product codes ranging from 10000 to 19999 and 70000 to 79999. The recalled products were sold under the following brand names:
- West Creek
- Tip Top
- R.W. Zant Co.
- Delizous Farms
- Clean Eatz Café
