SPRINGDALE, ARK. — Tyson Foods’ Weaver brand is reintroducing the Weaver Chicken Roll.

“We are proud of the long-standing heritage of the Weaver brand and are pleased that the Weaver Chicken Roll has become part of families’ mealtime traditions,” said Harold Heinze, vice-president of lunch meats, deli and hams for Tyson. “We will always enjoy hearing stories of fond childhood memories of the Weaver Chicken Roll and now as adults they can share the memory and same great taste with their own kids.”

Tyson was prompted by on-line inquires and consumer phone calls to reintroduce the product. The product may be used in sandwiches, antipasto and salads as well as in casseroles, soups, croquettes, omelets and appetizers. The product is available in Northeast markets.

Bring it to Pahrump NV. As a displace NYer, I miss that meat and want it also. As well as a number of ex-NYers here and LV.

Chicken roll was my favorite deli meat! Pittsburghers called it chicken loaf. I think I remember turkey loaf too. I remember hearing about the salmonella outbreak, and how they had to shut down the facility that manufactured it, but REALLY!?... was there only ONE SINGLE FACTORY in the entire U.S.A. that could possibly create this delicacy? I WANT ANSWERS!

I remember the weaver chicken roll lunch meat being so much better tasting in the 1980's and 90's. I wish they would make it like they used to.

Always loved chicken roll. Especially this time of year with fresh tomatoes. Keep looking for it every where I go but have had no luck. Does anyone in Connecticut carry this?
