Pieces of metal trigger chicken recall

August 27, 2004, as reported by just-food.com: ConAgra Foods is recalling approximately 85,600 pounds of frozen, fully cooked chicken breast strips after pieces of metal were found in some of the packages. The company and US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) received several complaints from consumers but no reports of injury.

The products were packaged on 20, 21 and 27 July 2004, and were distributed to retail stores nationwide. Consumers with questions about the recall may contact company's consumer information line at 1-800-414-7500. Media with questions about the recall may contact Tania Graves, company communications director, at (402) 595-6258.

The FSIS has classified the recall as a Class I recall, which means it is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health effects.
