Consumer complaints about metal objects being found in ready to eat chicken products were verified by USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, leading to a recall late Thursday of approximately 933,272 pounds of breaded chicken products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials by OK Food Inc. in Oklahoma City.
The ready-to-eat (RTE) breaded chicken items were produced on various dates from Dec. 19, 2016 through March 7, 2017. You can find ALL the recalled labels HERE
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-7092” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations and institutions nationwide.
The consumer complaints began coming in on March 21, 2017 . After an internal investigation, OK Food identified the affected product and determined that the objects in all the complaints came from metal conveyor belting.
