A number of chicken salad products have been recalled because of possible listeria contamination.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration last week announced the recall from a number of companies who used chicken from supplier Tip Top Poultry Inc. Tip Top Poultry notified other companies that its chicken meat may have been contaminated with listeria monocytogenes at its production facility.
