The problem was discovered after FSIS and the company received consumer complaints.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website.

Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov or via smartphone at m.askkaren.gov. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday.

  • I don’t even care so much for chicken. Unless it’s fried. Same for turkey. Now, we gotta keep Perdue from getting into the seafood business.

    • Agreed Raeford! If they go into seafood, you’ll have to buy a bigger boat to help keep us supplied around here with our other fishermen.

      I’m noticing it’s usually the “ready-to-eat” products that are recalled most in any company. I do wonder if that’s a factor in the equation.
