Massachusetts Firm Recalls Buffalo Style Chicken Salad Products That May Contain Foreign Materials
Editor's Note, May 11, 2010: The recall release issued May 5, 2010 has been corrected, as it inadvertently stated that "the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS Web site." FSIS does not post retail distribution lists for Class II and III recalls.
WASHINGTON, May 5, 2010 - Boston Salads and Provisions Inc., a Boston, Mass., establishment, is recalling approximately 40 pounds of buffalo style chicken salad products that may contain foreign materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The products subject to recall include:
- 5-pound containers of "BOSTON SALADS BUFFALO STYLE CHICKEN SALAD."
Each container bears the establishment number "P-17999" inside the USDA mark of inspection, as well as a sell-by date of "MAY-19-2010" and instructions to "KEEP REFRIGERATED." The chicken salad products subject to recall were produced on April 29, 2010, and were distributed to wholesale and retail establishments in Maine and Massachusetts.
The problem was discovered after the company received a customer complaint about finding pieces of metal in the product. FSIS has not received any consumer complaints or reports of injury at this time. Anyone concerned about an injury from consumption of this product should contact a physician.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
Consumers with questions about the recall should contact the company's Quality Assurance Manager, Claudia Stohrer at (617) 541-9046, Ext. 20. Media with questions about the recall should contact the company's Plant Manager, Jeff Watts at (617) 541-9046, Ext. 18.
