Over 2 million pounds of chicken recalled in 7 states, including Pa.
More than two million pounds of chicken in seven states was recalled because it might have been contaminated by metal, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service.
None of the affected chicken was sold in stores. It was sold directly to institutions like schools, jails and hospitals.
There have been no reports of anyone harmed by the contaminated products, according to federal officials.
The chicken was prepared by Arkansas-based Simmons Prepared Foods Inc. between Oct. 21 and Nov. 4 and shipped to Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania.
Full details about the recalled products are available online at fsis.usda.gov.
Institutions that received the products are urged to throw them away or return them, not serve them.
