Ready-To-Eat Chicken Products Recall Expanded To Nearly 2 Million Pounds

 Tuesday, December 6, 2016


National Steak and Poultry issued a recall of more 1.9 million pounds of its ready-to-eat chicken products, the Unites States Department of Agriculture said Monday. The products are sold as fully cooked for consumers to heat and serve, but they may be undercooked. Undercooked poultry can harbor bacteria that can lead to gastrointestinal illness. The USDA Food Safety Inspection Service said the recall was issued, "due to adulteration because of possible undercooking, resulting in the potential survival of bacterial pathogens in the products." The announcement expands a recall first issued November 23 by the Oklahoma-based company.
