Tyson Foods extended a nationwide recall on some chicken products over possible bacterial contamination.

The company recalled more than 450,000 pounds of chicken over concerns that some ready-to-eat products could have listeria contamination.

The products were produced at a Missouri plant from December 26, 2020 to April 13, 2021. Institutions like nursing homes, hospitals, schools and defense locations are affected, as well as stores like Walmart, Wegman’s and HEB.

The total recall now sits at about 9 million pounds of products.
