Check your freezer!

If you have frozen chicken products in your freezer, check the package. OK Food, Inc. is recalling nearly 1 million pounds of breaded chicken that may be contaminated with metal.

The ready-to-eat chicken products were produced on multiple dates between Dec. 19, 2016 and March 7, 2017 and were sold nationwide. They include nuggets, patties, fries and fillets and were sold under the names Farmington, Smart Foods4Schools and Great Value.

The problem was discovered on March 21, 2017 after OK Foods Inc. received five consumer complaints that metal objects were found in the products and by USDA Food Safety Inspection Service personnel. It was then determined the objects in the complaints were from metal conveyor belting.

The USDA says there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions to the products, but anyone concerned about illness or injury should contact their healthcare provider. If you purchased the affected products, you are urged not to consume them and either throw them away or return them to the place they were purchased.
