Chicken recall for Listeria hits major grocery chains in multiple states

The USDA has released a list of stores in multiple states affected by recall on ready-to-eat chicken products over concerns about Listeria. The stores include chains Food Lion, Kroger and ALDI, among many others.

Tip Top Poultry issued the recall for frozen cooked, diced or shredded poultry products on Sept. 28. 

The USDA said the recall was expanded Tuesday after it was found the chicken was used in additional products. Some of the products may have been served from the deli counter in grocery stores.
