House of Raeford has announced that they are voluntarily recalling more than 4,100 pounds of a cooked chicken breast product due to possible bacterial contamination. After conducting an investigation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said that the chicken may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, which can lead to listeriosis, a potentially fatal disease. The product was distributed to delicatessens and food service facilities in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina for further processing.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture and food processing giant Perdue have announced a recall of more than 90,000 pounds of chicken nuggets due to the possibility of contamination. The food recall affects Great Value brand frozen chicken nuggets sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores as the USDA and Perdue believe there is a possibility that the food contains “foreign materials.” Perdue reportedly found small pieces of blue plastic in samples of the nuggets after receiving complaints from consumers.
