2 million pounds of ready-to-eat chicken recalled
Federal regulators earlier this week issued a recall of nearly 2 million pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products from an Oklahoma establishment because of possible undercooking.
Now, the state Food Safety and Sanitation Program is warning Alaskans that some of the recalled poultry made it to the Last Frontier.
The products are mostly marketed under the company's name, National Steak and Poultry, and bear the establishment number “P-6010T” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The items were shipped to food service locations nationwide and were sold directly to retail consumers.
While no illnesses have been reported in Alaska from the tainted chicken, people are urged to throw away any items subject to the recall or return it to the place of purchase.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
USDA considers this a Class I health hazard, "where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death."
