(Before It's News)

Following consumer complaints and one potential injury, Crider Inc. in Stillmore, GA, Tuesday recalled 5,610 pounds of canned organic roasted chicken breast that may be contaminated with foreign materials according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The cans of Wild Planet brand organic roasted chicken breast were produced on Jan. 16.  It can be identified by the following label information:

  • 1,496 cases of 5-ounce cans of “Wild Planet Organic Roasted Chicken Breast – 100% Chicken Breast & Sea Salt – No Liquids Added” with a Best Buy Date of 01/16/18

The products subject to recall are marked with establishment number “EST. 31812” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to multiple distributers for further distribution.

The problem was discovered when a distributer received two complaints from consumers involving foreign matter in the product on Oct. 2 and 9.

The company received a report of a potential injury associated with consumption of this product. FSIS has received no additional reports of injury or illness from consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website.
