Simmons Prepared Foods has recalled over two million pounds of poultry products after it found last month that the chicken may have been contaminated with metal, according to the United States Department of Agriculture.
Most of the recalled poultry is bulk chicken products that are shipped to “industrial business customers,” according to Donny Epp, a company spokesman.
“These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase,” the U.S.D.A. said in a statement on Wednesday, adding that there had been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions related to consumption of the recalled poultry.
The products, which were produced from Oct. 21 to Nov. 4, were shipped to locations in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania, according to the U.S.D.A. Simmons declined to say what metal was found in the chicken.
