Another day, another recall, folks. It seems like it's happening a whole lot lately!
If you are somebody who often buys ready-to-eat meat products, you putt a lot of trust in the company you are buying from that their products are absolutely safe to eat.
Unfortunately, however, WFSP Foods, LLC was forced to recall 42,147 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken breast products due to the meat being undercooked.
That is seriously dangerous!
The products potentially contain bacterial pathogens as a result of the undercooking, according to the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service, per Fox News.
If you have any ready-to-eat grilled chicken breast items that were produced on March 29, 2017, and/or April 7, 2017, chilling in your freezer or fridge, the following products are included in the recall:
- 9-pound foodservice cases containing 8 poly film packages of “CHEF’S LINE ALL NATURAL FIRE GRILLED CHICKEN BREAST” with product code 22586, produced on 04/07/17, and Best by date 06/14/17.
- 9-pound foodservice cases containing 8 poly film packages of “saladworks FULLY COOKED FLAME GRILLED CHICKEN BREAST FILLETS” with product code 22500, produced on 03/29/17 and Use by date 06/05/17.
The case is rated as a Class I recall, which means that the risk these products pose to consumers health is high; if you ingest the product, there is a reasonable probability that you might be inflicted with serious adverse health consequences. The worst-case scenario, of course, is that eating an undercooked meat product with bacterial pathogens could result in death.
While nobody has confirmed reports of any illnesses or adverse reactions after eating the products, the USDA did say, per Fox News, that the firm received multiple customer complaints abut the chicken appearing not to be cooked all the way through, resulting in the recall.
If you have these products on hand, please toss them out or return them to the place of purchase for a refund. It's not worth risking your health!
