OK Foods Recalls Chicken Products Due To Possible Contamination

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on Thursday, March 23 that it is recalling 933,272 pounds of breaded chicken products from the OK Food, Inc. out of Oklahoma City, OK.

The problem was discovered Tuesday after OK Foods received complaints of metal fragments in the chicken.

Affected products were manufactured from December 19, 2016 to March 7, 2017, and bear the establishment number "P-7092" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The ready to eat breaded chicken items were produced between December 19th of last year and March 7th of this year. The products were also sold to institutions across the country. After an internal investigation, OK Foods determined the fragments came from a conveyor belt.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

Consumers have not reported any illnesses as a result of eating the chicken but OK Food, Inc instructs the affected product be either returned or thrown out.

More information on the recall can be found here. When available, the retail distribution list (s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
