Over 2 Million Pounds Of Simmons Chicken Recalled Due To Metal Contamination

For more information, consumers can call Donald Miller, senior vice president of sales at Simmons Prepared Foods, Inc., at (888) 831-7007.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the manufacturer are recalling more than 2 million pounds of chicken because it may have "extraneous materials" in it, including metal. Simmons, with headquarters in Siloam Springs, has chose to recall 2,071,397 pounds of poultry products because of the contamination.

The recall was initiated after retailers that had bought the products discovered the problem, according to the USDA notice.

No injuries or illnesses have been confirmed in relation to the Simmons poultry.

The establishment numbers "P-1949", "P-486" or "P-5837" will appear inside the USDA mark of inspection on the products.

The items in question were produced from October 21 until Monday, Nov. 4, and shipped to Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in institutional freezers.

"Institutions that have purchased these products are urged not to serve them". If you do have a recalled chicken product, the USDA says to dispose of it right away or return it to the place of purchase. We are working closely with regulatory authorities and affected customers to expedite this product recall.

However, it remains unclear how the metal got into the poultry products, the type of metal that was found by officials and when it was discovered.
