Tyson Foods Inc. is recalling about 33,840 pounds of mechanically separated chicken products due to fears it may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria, CBS News reports.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and Tyson Foods said that they were voluntarily recalling some 40-pound cases, which contained four 10-pound packages of Tyson Mechanically Separated Chicken. The products were produced in October of 2013.

The chicken was intended for institutional use only across the country, and would not have made its way for consumer purchase in retail stores, according to the report.
