WASHINGTON – The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service issued an updated recall notice on products produced by Wayne Farms LLC’s Decatur, Ala. processing plant. The recall now includes a total of 585,030 lbs of ready-to-eat (RTE) chicken breast fillet products that may have been undercooked.
The expanded recall came less than one week after the company announced a recall of a different type of RTE product on May 2, which included approximately 30,000 lbs of chicken fillets. The production dates of the latest recall range from Feb. 9, 2022, to April 30, 2022, and added the following products:
- 6-lb cases containing 24 individual packages of 4-oz “ALL NATURAL FIRE GRILLED CHICKEN BREAST FILLET” with “use by” date 3/5/23.
- 16-oz zippered plastic packages containing “CHEF’S CRAFT CHICKEN BREAST FILLET” and establishment number P-20214 printed next to the 3/23/2023 best by date. No illnesses or adverse reactions related to the consumption of the products have been reported.
The company was notified of the issue after a retail customer reported that the products appeared to be undercooked. The products bear the establishment number “EST. 20214” on cases and packages and were shipped to distributors as well as restaurant and retail locations, including retailers in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
