OK Foods recalling chicken over possible metal contamination

OK Foods Inc. has issued a recall of more than 900,000 pounds of its breaded chicken products over concerns they may have been contaminated with metal and other materials.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) said the ready-to-eat breaded chicken items were produced between Dec. 19, 2016 and March 7, 2017. Approximately 933,272 pounds of chicken are subject to recall. TAP HERE for a list of products recalled. TAP HERE for labels of the recalled products.

The USDA said the company's recalled products will have the establishment number “P-7092” in the USDA mark of inspection, and that the items were shipped to retail locations and institutions nationwide. The recalled products came from OK Foods' Oklahoma City location.

“After an internal investigation, the firm identified the affected product and determined that the objects in all the complaints came from metal conveyor belting,” the USDA said.

Consumers who have the recalled products are urged not to consume them. They should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

The USDA added, “There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.”
