A food manufacturing company in Oklahoma City is recalling close to a million pounds of breaded chicken because of possible metal objects in the food. The contamination caused by metal conveyor belts has led to the recalling of 466 tons of food shipped to locations across the country, which were produced between Dec. 19. 2016, and March 7, 2017, and included the number “P-7092” inside the inspection number of USDA. According to the U.S Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), five consumers had complained that they found metals in the chicken products.
OK Food, Inc., an Oklahoma City, Okla. establishment, is recalling approximately 933,272 pounds of breaded chicken products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.
The problem was discovered on March 21, 2017 after OK Foods Inc. received five consumer complaints stating that metal objects were found in the ready-to-eat chicken products and by FSIS inspection personnel during verification activities. After an internal investigation, the firm identified the affected product and determined that the objects in all the complaints came from metal conveyor belting.
