Poultry products from one of the largest producers of kosher poultry in North America may be contaminated with "extraneous" materials, specifically metal.
WASHINGTON — Empire Kosher Poultry Inc., one of the largest producers of kosher poultry in North America, is recalling over 10,000 lbs. of raw poultry products.
The poultry products may be contaminated with “extraneous” materials, specifically metal, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
The recall spans nationwide. The raw chicken breasts in question, labeled “Empire KOSHER NATURAL Chicken Breasts, Boneless & Skinless,” were packaged Nov. 2. and bear the number “P-1015” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions to the consumption of the products, but FSIS is urging people not to consume the recalled poultry. They say the products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
An employee discovered the problem when observing foreign material in a chicken breast during routine duties.
