More Than 2 Million Pounds of Chicken Products Recalled Over Metal Contamination Concerns

The items subject to the recall were produced between October 21 and November 4.

Simmons Prepared Foods discovered metal may have made its way into a variety of ready-to-cook chicken products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a news release. The chicken products subject to recall can be identified by a number inside the USDA mark of inspection.

To date, there have been no confirmed reports of bad reactions as a result of consuming the products.

The problem was discovered by Simmons Prepared Foods, Inc. establishments during further processing.

The recall was classified as "Class I" by the federal agency, designating it as a "health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death".
