Food Recall: Great Value Chicken Breast Patty

Mar 24, 2017

OK Food, Inc. is recalling approximately 933,272 pounds of breaded chicken products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal.

The ready-to-eat (RTE) breaded chicken items were produced on various dates from Dec. 19, 2016 through March 7, 2017.

These items include 7.5-lb. packages containing “Great Value FULLY COOKED HERB SEASONED BREADED CHICKEN BREAST PATTY WITH RIB MEAT” bearing case code 201258 and “Best By/Use by” dates 3/2/2018. This is a Walmart product that the Foodbank may have distributed, though we have not yet confirmed that.

The products subject to recall bear 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 firm identified the affected product and determined that the objects in all the complaints came from metal conveyor belting.

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

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.
