Tyson Foods has announced a recall of nearly 34,000 pounds of chicken on fears of salmonella contamination.

The United State Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service was notified of a Salmonella Heidelberg cluster of illnesses on December 12, 2013. Together with the Tennessee Department of Health, the FSIS discovered a link between mechanically separated chicken products from Tyson Foods, and an outbreak of illness in a Tennessee correctional facility. Seven people were sickened, and of those cases, two were hospitalized.

The mechanically separated chicken at the center of the recall was produced on October 11, and sold in 40-pound cases containing four 10-pound chubs. The products were not available for retail sale to restaurants or consumers, and were shipped for institutional use only, nationwide.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Tyson Foods’ consumer relations department at 866-886-8456. More information is available on Tyson's website.

About 48 million people contract some form of food poisoning each year, according to the CDC, and salmonella is the leading cause of foodborne illness. Salmonella causes an estimated 1.3 million illnesses each year in the United States. In December, the FSIS announced that it hopes to tackle that toll with the help of a new "Salmonella Action Plan."

The ten-point strategy outlines the steps the agency will take to address issues in meat and poultry production, which it considers "the most pressing problem it faces."

Foodborne illness prevention

The United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) provides these recommendations for preventing Salmonellosis

– The only way to be sure the meat or poultry is cooked to a high enough temperature to kill harmful bacteria is to use a thermometer to measure the internal temperature. For ground meat, the temperature is 160°F and for non-ground poultry 165°F.

– Wash hands with warm soapy water for 20 seconds before and after handling food and after using the bathroom, changing diapers, and handling pets.

– Wash utensils, cutting boards, dishes, and countertops with hot soapy water after preparing each food item and before you go on to the next item.

– Consider using paper towels to clean kitchen surfaces. If you use cloth towels, wash them often in the hot cycle of your washing machine.

Fast facts on salmonella

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that people in a normal state of health who ingest Salmonella-tainted food may experience diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps, which typically begin within 12 to 72 hours. This may be accompanied by vomiting, chills, headache and muscle pains. These symptoms may last about four to seven days, and then go away without specific treatment, but left unchecked, Salmonella infection may spread to the bloodstream and beyond and may cause death if the person is not treated promptly with antibiotics.

Children, the elderly, and people with compromised immune symptoms should practice extreme caution, as salmonellosis may lead to severe illness or even death.

    This comes as no surprise...I was once employed in a prison. Inmates are served cold food on trays with mold. Prisons purchase the cheapest products money can buy. In Florida, the daily budget per inmate, for three meals a day is $1.75... Imagine what that must be like. Prisons are for profit these days and conditions will become worse. Stay out of jail and these will not become concerns.....prison is like hell on earth.

      And as they should. They are prisoners. They lost their rights to good "stuff" once they committed whatever crime they are in their for.

      Here in NJ, prisoners are treated VERY good. Free shelter and 3 square meals a day and most of them eat better than I do. Which is why it cost us $49,000/year to house 1 inmate in jail for 1 year.

      We treat our criminals better than we do our sick, mentally ill or homeless. Criminals get free food and shelter, but homeless people get kicked to the curb. Criminals should be fed the bottom of the barrel. Its called punishment for a reason!

        You don't really know what you're talking about. Food costs are one of the smallest expenditures a correctional facility incurres. That 49k/year is largely going to staffig costs and maintaince

        • crkohler

          So in your mind.... Eh... whats another few thousand dollars a year per person so a criminal can eat good food?

          I didn't break the law and I get to eat good food. The criminals could have, too, but they gave up that right. They already have it good enough in there. With an 80% re-incarceration rate with in 1 year, jail must not be THAT bad if people keep going back.

      • Shipwrecked

        Agree with you crkohler. There is too much money spent on incarcerated people and they need to work to earn some of it instead of being on State vacation.

    After all, no prosecutor has ever withheld evidence. No detective has ever been blinded by tunnel vision from a bogus polygraph. No one has ever been held in an interrogation room for 16 hours with nothing to eat. These things are just myths perpetrated by the godless degenerates.

    Does it make sense to you? The illness can go away "without specific treatment", but left unchecked it can cause death???? So if I suspect salmonella, I should say "CHECK... CHECK"?

    Prison should be a tough existence – so you don't go back if you are not a lifer. That said, the prisoners should get proper nutrition. This slime they serve (mechanically separated) sounds like garbage. I once toured Alcatraz. I was told by the guide that they served real food to keep the prisoners in line (the worst of the worst was sent there). While I agree costs come into play, let's get real. This doesn't sound like chicken, as per another poster's description of "mechanically separated" chicken. How gross. As long as prisoners are human, they need to be nourished as such. What's next, dog food?

    Prisons should consider serving inmates healthy vegan foods such as lentils, beans, grains, and veggies. Not only are vegan foods less expensive, they are far less likely to cause outbreaks of salmonella poisoning, and don’t contribute to diet-related health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and others that require costly treatment.

    Mechanically separated chicken is white slime. Gross – the following is straight from Wikipedia: "Mechanically separated meat (MSM), mechanically recovered/reclaimed meat (MRM), or mechanically deboned meat (MDM) is a paste-like meat product produced by forcing beef, pork, turkey or chicken, under high pressure through a sieve or similar device to separate the bone from the edible meat tissue. It is sometimes called "white slime" as an analog to pink slime and to meat extracted by advanced meat recovery systems, both of which are different processes. The process entails pureeing or grinding the carcass left after the manual removal of meat from the bones and then forcing the slurry through a sieve under pressure. This puree included bone, bone marrow, skin, nerves, blood vessels in addition to the scraps of meat remaining on the bones. The resulting product is a blend of muscle (meat) and other tissues not generally considered meat. Critics sometimes claim that it contains "eyeballs and guts", but this is incorrect.[1] The process is controversial; Forbes, for example, called it a "not-so-appetizing meat production process".

          No one is in prison for "minor" offenses. Most have been in and out of jail several times before they violate probation rules and end up in prison where they finish their sentences. Prison is a rotating door for 95% of the inmate population. The real problem is that prison is a step up from most of the jails inmates have been in.

      Wrong. Read a little more closely. They export American raised chickens to China for processing in their China facility. The chicken used in this country is produced here. With the number of farms they contract to grow chickens for their U. S. processing plants and export to other countries, why in the world would they need to import from China?

    January 13, 2014 at 10:01 am |
    • Eric

      No. Most chicken does not have salmonella. Salmonella thrives in chicken's urine and feces, so if the meat is tainted with salmonella it's because it was improperly handled and because the facility that the chickens came from had poor adherence to health and safety requirements. To make matters worse, chickens with Salmonella tend to lay Salmonella infected eggs, which are often eaten raw or deliberately prepared undercooked.

      This was a big screwup on the part of Tyson, or more specifically, somebody in their network of producers. Salmonella kills. It is a serious problem when an outbreak of it happens.

        Their was a report recently of chicken breasts tested for fecal bacteria. 97% of the breasts were infected so processing is not doing a good job of separating gut from meat. Only 11% were infected with salmonella but getting sick every tenth time that I eat chicken isn't OK by me. All chicken should be cooked AND HANDLED as if it is known to be infected.

          I've home-butchered more than my fair share of chickens. Even with all the time in the world, razor-sharp quality tools, and no pressure, it's difficult to gut a chicken without spilling the intestinal contents. I have very little faith that chickens cleaned on an assembly line, by people paid minimum wage and under high pressure to do as many as possible as quickly as possible, are being gutted cleanly. Anything I buy from the store gets THOROUGHLY cooked. Also, in the last few months I've found two livers with gallbladders attached, and a gizzard that wasn't peeled, plus a testicle in a tub of livers, in store-bought containers of giblets that were supposedly for human consumption. So their quality control sucks. I can't wait to be able to raise my own meat birds again ...

        And prison rape is something that people need to stop joking about. It's a serious issue.

          Prison rape is what keeps 50% of the prison population from becoming repeat offenders. Prison rape gets one gold star for me – this isn't club med. I also would go for lashings instead of solitary confinement for the bad boys. Prison is just a recovery resort for gang bangers where they get to hang with their homies and learn how to be better criminals. Work farms would be a better use of resources.

      I will never understand why people take the time to say they don't care about a story that they obviously took the time to click on. Idiots.

      It's proven that about 5% of them are innocent and got hung up on some kind of technicality. I got a DUI once and I wasn't even driving. However, since I was standing next to my truck drunk as a skunk and I had the keys in my pocket, the court said I was technically in "physical control" of my vehicle.

      Best part is I was parked in front of my house. Could be you, so careful what you wish for.

    So? They are just prisoners.

      I hope you are being sarcastic. Feeding tainted food to prisoners costs a ton of money in additional medical care.

      They're human beings in there to serve their debt to society, not to be tortured or otherwise mistreated..

      Heh-heh. Most of the, um, treatments found in the Dungeon, LLC have been outlawed for use in the prison system.
