Sanderson Farms has announced a recall of over half a million pounds of poultry products that may contain metal shavings.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced the recall
for items produced Sept. 17-18, 2015, bearing the establishment number "EST. P-247."
Sanderson Farms, based in Hazlehurst, Mississippi, shipped the products to processing facilities in Georgia and Louisiana.
One processing facility found the metal shavings in the meat, and they are believed to have come from a malfunctioning ice-making machine.
"The product included ice packed chicken products sold to three customers who use the products for additional processing into further processed chicken products," Sanderson Farms said in a statement.
"The Company has identified all of the products and notified its customers to place the products on hold, return them to the Company and further execute the recall of these products."
There have been no reports of injuries due to the contaminated products.
Items subject to recall include the following:
- 70-lb. cases containing “YOUNG CHICKEN PARTS JUMBO BONELESS SKINLESS BREAST FILLETS WITH RIB MEAT” with case code 45017.
