Mailbag! URGENT Food Recall Alert

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

You’ve got questions…

We’ve got answers!

Today, we are going to address something very urgent — a huge food recall that includes one of America’s most popular meats.

Let’s get started…

Hi, Natalie,

My husband just returned from the grocery and said there’s been a chicken recall. Do you know anything about this? If so, is there a specific brand that needs to be avoided? Or is there another way to know if you’re buying contaminated chicken?

Thanks a lot,

Sandy D.

Thanks for such an important question, Sandy.

Your husband is correct: There is a major recall on chicken going on right now — 2 million pounds of chicken products, to be exact.

National Steak and Poultry has issued a recall on chicken parts that are sold as fully cooked, heat-and-serve foods. The recalled chicken is undercooked and could be harboring dangerous bacteria that can cause severe stomach issues.

Back in November, the Oklahoma-based company first issued a recall on 17,439 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken parts. However, they added over 1.9 million pounds to that number on Monday.

So it looks like this is a much bigger deal than anyone had thought.

These products were produced between Aug. 20 and Nov. 30 and distributed to retailers throughout the country, sold under various brands.

So how can you tell if one of the chicken products in your fridge or freezer has been recalled? All recalled products have a USDA inspection mark with P-6010T in it and include boneless chicken cubes, chicken breast strips with rib meat and chicken fajita strips.

The USDA reports this recall is categorized as Class I, which means any of the products involved could cause “serious adverse health consequences or death.” However, we still don’t know how many people — if any — have gotten sick.

If you’re in the market for some ready-to-eat chicken products, please make sure you’re not buying any products with inspection mark P-6010T. Additionally, click here to check out the full list of recalled products, which includes familiar brands like Hormel and Shaker Valley Foods.
