Must read

WASHINGTON — Winter Gardens Quality Foods Inc. of New Oxford, Pa., is recalling approximately 3,710 pounds of chicken salad products that may be contaminated with extraneous plastic materials, USDA’s Food Safety & Inspection Service has announced.

The product being recalled are 10-pound bulk plastic tubs containing “Soutwest Chicken Salad.” The items were produced on various dates between Jan. 28 and Feb. 11, 2016, and have the establishment number “P-9815” inside the USDA mark of inspection and case code “2444.” These items were shipped to a distributor in Pennsylvania for further processing and distribution.

The problem was discovered when the company was notified by its oil supplier of a packaging defect that could lead to potential plastic contamination where plastic pieces may flake or break off in the soybean salad oil used in the chicken salad.
