A 3rd poultry producer recalls chicken that may contain rubber or wood
Pilgrim's Pride is recalling 58,000 pounds of popcorn-style chicken sold at Publix Super Markets after consumer complaints of rubber in the product. The Texas company is the third major poultry producer in recent weeks to recall a total of nearly 163,000 pounds of chicken possibly tainted with extraneous material, or in these cases, rubber and wood.
Foreign objects in food is a very common reason for U.S. recalls, accounting for 10 of the last 50, or about 20 percent of the time in the last six months, Benjamin Chapman, a food safety expert, told CBS MoneyWatch.
