A massive chicken recall is now underway, after federal regulators reported tons of poultry may be contaminated with "extraneous materials."
GNP Company, parent of Just BARE and Gold'n Plump, recalled 55,608 pounds of chicken. On Saturday, the USDA Food & Inspection Service reported that the products might be tainted, but did not say how or why. Meanwhile, GNP said in a statement that the contamination was "linked to an isolated product tampering incident that occurred at the company's Cold Spring processing plant the week of June 6."
The company added there have been no confirmed reports of illness due to consumption or use of the products. The company also emphasized that the recalled items are primarily sold in bulk to food service and institutional outlets, and that only one retail product is included in the recall.
Customers that purchased Just BARE Whole Chicken, sold in four-pound bags with a use or freeze by date of June 26, are being advised to throw the item away or return it to the store for a refund.
GNP said that a third-party lab determined the foreign material to be "benign, natural materials including dirt/sand," but that the company cannot say with "100 percent certainty that the product is safe for consumption."
