AdvancePierre Foods recalls fried chicken breasts sold nationwide
Firm recalling 15,328 pounds of products sold in many states, including Florida
An Oklahoma company is recalling 15,328 pounds of frozen, fully cooked country fried steak products because they may contain foreign materials, such as pieces of plastic.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service made the announcement Friday.
The firm said it received complaints from two customers who each received an oral injury upon eating one of its products. The problem was a result of a piece of a plastic bin being introduced into the production process and then being broken into smaller pieces.
The products included in the recall include:
- 22.75-oz. pouches of "Fast Classics Country Fried Steaks"
- 8.5-lb. cases, each containing six pouches of "Fast Classics Country Fried Steaks"
The FSIS says the products were produced on Dec. 21, 2012.
The packages bear the establishment number "EST. 2260Y" in the USDA mark of inspection on the front of the package. They also have a "BEST BY" date of March 21, 2014 stamped on a label on the back of the package, along with the case code of 1523560202.
The products were distributed to one retail chain in multiple states across the country, including Florida. When available, the FSIS says the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on their website here.
