An Arkansas-based poultry producer recalled more than 2 million pounds of products, some of which were shipped to California, after discovering they may be contaminated, federal regulators said Wednesday.
More than 2 million pounds of chicken products were voluntarily recalled over concerns they may be contaminated with "extraneous" materials, specifically metal, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service.
The recalled items have the establishment number "P-1949", "P- 486", or "P-5837" inside the USDA's mark of inspection.
The agency noted that some of the chicken products might be frozen.
A list of recalled poultry products can be found here.
Customers are urged not to consume the products and either throw them out or return them to the store where they were purchased for a refund.
"Food safety is a very serious matter at Simmons".
The statement added: "This issue was discovered through Simmons standard food safety and quality checks".
The dates on the package are between October 21 and November 4.
According to the recall the chicken could contain metal.
To date, there have been no confirmed reports of bad reactions as a result of consuming the products.
FSIS says anyone with questions about the recall can call Donald Miller, senior vice president of sales at Simmons Prepared Foods, Inc, at (888) 831-7007.
These products were shipped to Alabama and Georgia.
