COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The United States Department of Agriculture has recalled 1,976,089 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products from National Steak and Poultry.
The products are sold as fully cooked and ready to heat and serve, but the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service says they may be undercooked, harboring bacteria that can potentially lead to gastrointestinal illness.
The recalled products were sold to retailers nationwide and were produced between August 20 and November 30 of this year. The affected products, including chicken breast strips with rib meat, boneless chicken cubes and chicken breast fajita strips, have a USDA inspection mark with P-6010T on it.
There have been no confirmed reports of illness related to the recalled products as of late, the USDA says.
The announcement expands a recall first issued November 23, which recalled around 17,000 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken parts for the same reason.
If you have any of the recalled products, you are advised to throw it away or return it to the place of purchase.
