Two Million Pounds of Chicken Recalled for Possible Metal Contamination

FRIDAY, Nov. 8, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- More than 2 million pounds of chicken products have been recalled by Simmons Prepared Foods because of possible contamination with metal.

In the recall, announced Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), health officials warned that there is a reasonable probability that consuming the chicken products "will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death."

Among the recalled products are ready-to-cook chicken wing sections, tenderloins and whole legs. The products were packaged between Oct. 21 and Nov. 4. They were shipped to stores in Pennsylvania, California, Alabama, Georgia, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Arizona and Arkansas, FSIS said.

At this point, "There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products," the agency added. Those who may have consumed one of these products and are concerned should contact their doctor.

Concerned consumers can contact Donald Miller, senior vice president of sales at Simmons Prepared Foods Inc. at (888) 831-7007.
