Pa. firm recalls 31K pounds of frozen chicken

by Alex Wigglesworth

A Pennsylvania-based frozen food company has recalled nearly 31,700 pounds of gluten-free breaded chicken products that may be contaminated with Staphylococcal enterotoxin.

Murry’s Inc., of Lebanon, issued the recall for 12-ounce boxes of Bell & Evans gluten-free breaded chicken breast nuggets and 10.5-ounce boxes of Bell & Evans gluten-free breaded chicken breasts, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Saturday.

The products, which were shipped to retail locations nationwide, have an expiration date of Aug. 9, 2015, and bear the establishment number “P-516” inside the USDA mark of inspection, a USDA spokeswoman said.

The spokeswoman said neither the USDA nor Murry’s have received any report of adverse reactions from customers who consumed the products.

The Colorado Department of Agriculture detected the toxin in the chicken during a USDA-funded retail surveillance and sampling program at a federal Emergency Response Network lab, the spokeswoman said.
