WASHINGTON — OK Food Inc., of Oklahoma City, Okla., is recalling approximately 933,272 pounds of breaded chicken products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal, USDA’s Food Safety & Inspection Service has announced.
The ready-to-eat (RTE) breaded chicken items were produced on various dates from Dec. 19, 2016, through March 7, 2017, and have establishment number “P-7092” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations and institutions nationwide.
The problem was discovered on March 21, 2017, after OK Foods Inc. received five consumer complaints stating that metal objects were found in the ready-to-eat chicken products and by FSIS inspection personnel during verification activities. After an internal investigation, the company identified the affected product and determined that the objects in all the complaints came from metal conveyor belting.
