Not many recalls hit the seven-figure mark for pounds recalled. And while the current chicken recall didn’t quite get there, it was pretty darn close.
On Thursday, FSIS announced that Oklahoma-based OK Foods was recalling approximately 933,272 pounds of breaded chicken because of possible metal contamination. The problem was discovered earlier this week, when metal objects were found in the RTE chicken products by both consumers and FSIS inspectors. The company has determined that the objects came from metal conveyor belting.
