Breaded popcorn chicken recalled by Pilgrim’s Pride because it may be contaminated with rubber

Screen Shot 2019-02-03 at 2.54.31 PMPilgrim’s Pride Corp. is recalling about 58,020 pounds of breaded popcorn chicken that may be contaminated with rubber, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Friday.

The frozen, breaded chicken items, which are not ready to eat, were produced on Jan. 4, 2019. The following chicken is included in the recall:

20-lb. boxes containing 8 clear bags of “UNCOOKED POPCORN STYLE CHICKEN BREAST CHUNK FRITTERS WITH RIB MEAT” with a “USE BY 10 01 2019” date and lot codes of 9004101012, 9004101013, 9004101014, 9004101015, 9004101016, 9004101017, 9004101018, 9004101019, 9004101020, 9004101021, 9004101022, 9004101000, and 9004101001. 

The bags of chicken have the establishment number “P-7091A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to Publix Super Markets in Florida for deli foodservice use.

The problem was discovered on Jan. 30 when the company was informed by Publix Super Markets’ employees about a consumer complaint regarding white rubber in breaded popcorn chicken that was purchased.

There have been no reports of adverse reactions from people who have eaten the recalled chicken. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.  

The FSIS is concerned that some of the recalled chicken may be stored in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased the recalled chicken shouldn’t eat it. The chicken should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact James Brown, Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation’s consumer relations, at 800-321-1470. 7801.
