The products include Simmons Ready to Cook Chicken Wing Sections, Tenderloins, Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast, Whole Legs, Whole Chicken Without Giblets, and more.
The recall also includes 33-pound cases of Town & Country Halal Chicken Leg Quarters.
There have been no confirmed reports of any injuries or illnesses.
The recalled chicken items were produced from October 21, 2019 to November 4, 2019 and marked with establishment number “P-1949,” “P- 486” or “P-5837” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The chicken was shipped to institutions in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania.
