Massive Recall Of Frozen Meals Due Contamination Of Metal Fragments


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.
