 P.F. Chang's Home Menu Mongolian Style Beef
ConAgra has expanded a recall of P.F. Chang's brand frozen entrees.
 

WASHINGTON – An expanded recall of an additional 191,791 lbs. of frozen chicken and beef products produced by ConAgra Foods’ Russellville, Arkansas plant suspected of containing metal materials was announced by the US Dept. of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on July 15, 2016. The original recall was issued July 6, 2016 and included 3,806 lbs., bringing the total to 195,597 lbs. of product.

The suspected extraneous materials in the product, according to the FSIS, are metal fragments ranging in size from 2 mm to 9 mm in diameter and may be embedded in the sauce used in the frozen products. The fragments are described as “curled, malleable and shiny.”

The fragments were first discovered by an employee on July 1, 2016. The company was then notified on July 14, 2016, by the supplier involved in a US Food and Drug Administration recall of sugar used in multiple production lots, including products those used in FSIS-regulated facilities, resulting in an expanded recall.

The products included in the recall were produced between May 31, 2016 and June 22 number and are marked with “EST. 233” or “EST. P-115” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distributors and retail locations nationwide. No injuries or adverse reactions have been reported as a result of consuming the products, according to the agency.
