SEDALIA, Mo., Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Tyson Foods, in Sedalia, Mo., says it is recalling approximately 33,840 pounds of separated chicken products that may be contaminated with Salmonella.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said it was notified of a Salmonella Heidelberg cluster of illnesses on Dec. 12. Working in conjunction with the Tennessee Department of Health, FSIS said it determined there was a link between the mechanically separated chicken products from Tyson Foods and the illness cluster in a Tennessee correctional facility.

Based on epidemiological and trace back investigations, seven case-patients at the facility have been identified with illnesses, with two resulting in hospitalization. Illness onset dates range from Nov. 29, 2013, to Dec. 5, 2013.

The mechanically separated chicken products were produced on Oct. 11.

Subject to the recall are: 40-pound cases, containing four, 10-lb. chubs of "TYSON MECHANICALLY SEPARATED CHICKEN."

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number "P-13556" inside the USDA mark of inspection with case code 2843SDL1412 -- 18. These products were shipped for institutional use only, nationwide. The product is not available for consumer purchase in retail stores, the FSIS said.

Those with questions about the recall should contact Tyson Foods' consumer relations department at (866) 886-8456.
