Ready-to-eat chicken has been recalled after about 2 million pounds of the chicken product was possibly undercooked.

National Steak and Poultry, a food manufacturing company, announced the recall on Sunday, according to Live Science.

“National Steak and Poultry, an Owasso, Okla., establishment, is recalling approximately 1,976,089 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products due to adulteration because of possible undercooking, resulting in the potential survival of bacterial pathogens in the products,” the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said in a statement Tuesday.

The product was produced from Aug. 20, 2016, to Nov. 30, 2016, and shipped to restaurants and fast-food franchises throughout the U.S., while being sold directly to consumers as well, as part of a company sale, Live Science noted.

The problem was first discovered from a call made by a food service customer who complained that the chicken looked like it was undercooked, Today reported.

There has yet to be any reports of illness from eating the product, but customers are being encouraged to get rid of the ready-to-eat chicken or return the product to where they purchased it.

Here’s the list of the products that have been recalled, according to Today:

  • Fully Cooked, Diced, Grilled Boneless Chicken Breast Meat with Rib Meat with Lot code 100416, and Case Code: 70020. 5 lb. bags packed 2 bags per case.
