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

The products were produced at a Missouri plant from December 26th, 2020 to April 13th, 2021.

Institutions like nursing homes, hospitals, schools, and defense locations are affected,  as well as stores like Walmart, Wegman's, and HEB.
