The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service has recently revealed that over 130,000 pounds of healthy choice chicken bowl products were being recalled by packaged food company, Conagra Brands, Inc.
The health department claims that these ready-to-eat chicken products could contain some extraneous material like small rocks. Evidently, the total figure included 130,763 pounds of chicken bowl items that were manufactured on Jan. 23, 2020.
The products involved in the recall comprise of frozen Chicken Feta & Farro, the Healthy Choice Power Chicken Bowls that apparently were not-ready-to-eat and had the printed labels “P115” on the packaging besides the best by date of Oct. 19, 2020.
As per the USDA, this recall was categorized under the Class I action, which means that this incident comes under a health hazard instance with a reasonable probability that the consumption of the food item would cause adverse, serious health consequences or might even result to death.
Apparently, the food products were delivered to almost all the stores present in the nation and were also exported to Canada. However, to this date, zero cases of illnesses or injuries have been caused due to consuming these products. Nevertheless, the USDA still advises all the consumers to contact a health care professional if they face any concerns.
Consumers are also advised to immediately dispose of these frozen foods, or just return it back to the stores where it was earlier brought.
Incidentally, Conagra Brands, Inc. has also made some positive headlines recently when it announced that it would offer cash bonuses to all its employees working in the distribution and production facilities across Canada, Mexico, and the U.S.
The company which owns over 50 facilities, is planning to offer $500 to all its full-time U.S. employees and $250 to all its part-time workforce. Whereas similar amounts of incentive would be offered to employees in Mexico and Canada.
