Oklahoma Company Recalls Nearly 100000 Pounds of Chicken for Metal Contamination

The recall affects products dated from December 19, 2016, to March 7, 2017.

The USDA announced a recall of almost one million pounds of breaded chicken that may contain metal fragments.

The ready-to-eat chicken portions were produced between December 19, 2016 and March 7, 2017, and bear establishment number P-7092 inside the USDA mark of inspection. None of the meat processors implicated in the Brazil investigation, including the country's two largest meat exporters, JBS and BRF, ship products to the U.S., FSIS said.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Friday that OK Food, Inc.is recalling 933,272 (423,329 kilograms) pounds of the food shipped nationwide that was produced between December 19, 2016, and March 7, 2017, and includes the number "P-7092" inside the USDA inspection mark. Labeling of products can be found here.

The recall comes after five people complained of finding metal in OK Food Inc.'s chicken.

OK Foods later identified the contaminated chicken and determined that the metal fragments came from a conveyor belt used during processing. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
