Massive chicken recall: What you need to know

The issue was first discovered March 21 after OK Foods received five consumer complaints about metal objects found in ready-to-eat chicken products. An investigation found the objects in all of the complaints came from metal conveyor belting.

Here’s what we know about the affected products:

  1. The ready-to-eat breaded chicken items (933,272 pounds) were produced on various dates from December 19, 2016 through March 7, 2017.
  2. Recalled products include chicken nuggets, chicken patties and chicken fries.
  3. The chicken items bear establishment number “P-7092” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
  4. Items were shipped to retail locations and institutions nationwide, including Walmart and Save-A-Lot.

Although there have been no confirmed reports of “adverse reactions,” the USDA says consumers should throw away the recalled chicken or return it to the store where they purchased it.
