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.
Tyson Foods Recalls 18 Tons of Chicken Nuggets After Reports of Contamination
Tyson Foods is recalling more than 36,000 pounds of frozen chicken nuggets after consumers reported finding soft, blue pieces of rubber inside the popular food.
The recall comes in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service and applies to the company’s Panko Chicken Nuggets that were sold in five pound plastic bags in grocery stores nationwide.
Consumers are being urged to look for bags with the “best by” date of Nov. 26, 2019, the Case Code 3308SDL03 and a time stamp ranging from 23:00 through 01:59. If you’ve got the product, either discard it or return it to the point of purchase for a refund.
Jennie-O turkey recall bigger than previously announced
A nationwide recall of raw turkey tied to a deadly outbreak of salmonella is getting bigger.
Since the recall of Jennie-O Turkey products was announced last week, health investigators have added a fifth item. That raises the amount of recalled turkey to more than 147,000 pounds, from 91,000 pounds, a spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Inspection Service (FSIS) told CBS MoneyWatch.
The recall of raw ground turkey products is linked to an outbreak strain of Salmonella Reading, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, with 164 infections reported from 35 states. The cases include 64 illnesses and one death in California, according to the CDC.
