Wayne Farms, LLC, is recalling about 438,960 pounds of chicken products over concerns that it may possibly be contaminated with metal pieces.
The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced the recall last week after the Georgia-based company reported receiving a customer complaint on July 27 of a foreign material in one of their food products. After investigating the complaint, Wayne Farms notified the USDA of its findings, the agency said in a news release.
The frozen, ready-to-eat, fully cooked chicken products were produced between July 4 and July 17, 2018 and have the establishment number "P-20214" inside the USDA mark of inspection circle on the top right of the product label.
These items were shipped to distributors, restaurants and further processing locations nationwide.
