Tip Top Poultry has expanded a recall for ready-to-eat chicken products, sandwiches, salads, wraps, backpacker meals, and other dishes, due to possible Listeria contamination.
The recall involves foods that were made with fully-cooked chicken products that were produced by Tip Top Poultry from January 21 to September 24, 2019, according to the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS).
The products were sold at Trader Joe’s, Food Lion, KJ Market, Jersey Mike’s, IGA, Great Harvest Bread Company, BI-LO, ALDI, Kroger, Piggly Wiggly, Harris Teeter, Dillons, Food 4 Less, and other stores.
Consumers can identify a recalled product with the number “Est. P-17453” inside the USDA inspection mark on the label.
The products include a wide range of foods that contain chicken, including Trader Joe’s Pesto Chicken Wrap, Deli Express Chicken Salad, Market Sandwich Chicken Wraps, Resers Chicken Salad, freeze-dried Backpacker’s Pantry meals with chicken, and many more.

The recall on October 8 expands a previous recall from September 28, which was issued after several products tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes bacteria contamination.
The chicken products involved in the recall were made on a single production line at Tip Top Poultry’s facility in Georgia. The company said it has undergone a “thorough intensified cleaning plan.”
“Tip Top Poultry is shutting down this fowl cooking line until it identifies the source of any potential contamination and completely eliminates it,” the company in a statement.
