OK Food Recalls Nearly 500 Tons Of Breaded Chicken

| by Erik Kindel

OK Food Inc., an Oklahoma City based food company, is recalling almost 500 tons of chicken because of possible metal contamination, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service made the announcement on March 30.

OK Food Inc. said 933,272 pounds of chicken might contain "extraneous materials," according to KCBS. Five people reportedly contacted the company after finding "metal fragments in their breaded chicken."

In a statement, OK Food Inc. apologized to its customers for the tainted breaded chicken, and identified the fragments as having come from a conveyor belt.

All of the recalled breaded, ready-to-eat chicken products were produced between Dec. 19 and March 7.

OK Food Inc. sells products under many different brand names, but each affected product will have the establishment number "P-7092" inside the USDA inspection stamp.

The recall affects Save A Lot fully cooked breaded chicken fries, Great Value chicken filets and many others, WHP reports.

So far, there have not been any recorded injuries or illnesses, but the recall remains in place.
