Massive Recall Of Frozen Meals Due Contamination Of Metal Fragments
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Nearly 200,000 pounds of chicken and beef is being
recalled from ConAgra Foods due to a possible contamination of a dangerous ingredient,
tiny metal fragments ranging in length between 2mm and 9mm. P.F. Chang’s
frozen meals containing chicken and beef are among the many affected by
this recall. The United States Department of Agriculture warns the metal
could be embedded in the sauce packaged with the frozen meals. The metal
fragments appear curled, malleable and shiny. There are no confirmed cases
of people ingesting the fragments. An employee making the sauce first
discovered the shards while pouring sugar bought from another supplier
on July 1, 2016, and reported the matter. The USDA is warning people NOT
to consume the frozen chicken and beef meals that were produced between
May 31, 2016, and June 22, 2016. Several products affected by the recall
will have a code EST. 223 or EST. P-115 inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The contaminated product was shipped to distributors and retailers across
the nation. Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact the United
States Department of Agriculture.
