1 Million Pounds Of Chicken Recalled Due To “Metal Objects”

This particular batch of chicken was made by OK Foods (not…the most ambitious name for a food manufacturer, though apparently “OK” refers to the company’s Oklahoma roots and is not any sort of statement on its quality). The company, which was purchased by a Mexican conglomerate in 2011, issued a recall for its breaded chicken after “metal objects” were discovered in a large batch.

OK Foods sells chicken under a variety of names, and the recall extends to brands including Smart Foods4Schools (which sells to school systems), Double D Foods, Chickentopia, Spring River Farms, and Great Value. The latter is one of Walmart’s house brands, which means OK Foods chicken is available to a very wide audience.

The metal objects appear to have come from a metal conveyor belt used in the manufacturing of the chicken, and OK Foods became aware of the problem after a series of customer complaints. No injuries or illnesses have yet been reported.

You can read the full recall, which includes a list of all the affected products, over on the USDA’s site. The USDA urges anyone who has purchased the affected products not to eat them. Again: Do not eat the metal chicken.
