Plastic In Chicken Products? Recall Issued

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

A Georgia company is recalling more than 35,000 pounds of breaded chicken products because they may contain pieces of plastic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Thursday.

Suzanna's Kitchen is recalling the following products:

- Cases containing twelve (12), 12-oz cartons of "Freebird Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets," with an identifying case code of "6220" and use-by date of March 15, 2014, ink-jetted on each case and carton. These cases have a Julian code of "2075."

- Cases containing twelve (12), 12-oz cartons of "Freebird Fully cooked Gluten Free/Soy Free Chicken Patties," with an identifying case code of "6244" and use-by date of September 6, 2013, ink-jetted on each case and carton. These cases have a Julian code of "1249."

- 10-lb bulk cases of "Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets," with an identifying case code of "6221" and use-by date of March 15, 2014 ink-jetted on the case. These cases have a Julian code of "2075," and were shipped to a foodservice distributor in California for further distribution.

The nuggets and patties have the USDA mark of inspection and were produced on March 15, 2012, and September 6, 2011, respectively.

FSIS officials say the problem was discovered when people complained that they had found pieces of plastic in the products. They say plastic pieces may have originated from the plastic bag the products were held in prior to production.

The company has received no reports of injury or illness.

For more information about this recall, call the Freebird Consumer Hotline at (800) 724-0206.
