RECALL : 2 Million Pounds of Chicken Recalled for Possible Contamination

The USDA says a voluntary chicken recall is underway.

Over two-million pounds of chicken is being recalled over fears they could contain pieces of metal. The Department of Agriculture says the chicken came from Simmons Prepared Foods and was distributed to a number of states across the country.

There's been no confirmed cases of people being impacted by metal in the chicken. The affected products, produced from Oct. 21, 2019, through Nov. 4, 2019, include many ready-to-cook chicken products, such as boneless skin chicken, whole chicken and chicken wings. Their establishment number reads "P-1949," "P- 486" or "P-5837" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The states in the recall, so far, are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania. The USDA says customers who bought the tainted meat should throw it out or return it for a refund.
