Check your fridge and freezer, there’s a recall.
Empire Kosher Poultry announced a Class I recall on Nov. 9 on approximately 11,000 pounds of raw poultry products potentially contaminated with metal materials, according to an announcement by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
The raw chicken breasts, produced and packaged on Nov. 2, were suspected of contamination after an employee spotted a foreign object resembling metal during a routine check.
The Pennsylvania-based establishment immediately followed protocol to ensure products suspected of contamination were recovered before reaching commerce, the announcement said.
According to Good Housekeeping, the recalled items were shipped to retailers such as Acme and HEB, nationwide. The following list of products were flagged for recall:
4 to 5.25-pound tray packages containing chicken breasts labeled “Empire KOSHER NATURAL Chicken Breasts, Boneless & Skinless” with case code 46375 and “Sell By” date 11/14/17.
1 to 1.25-pound tray packages containing chicken breasts labeled “Empire KOSHER NATURAL Chicken Breasts, Boneless & Skinless” with case code 7488 and “Sell By” date 11/16/17.

1 to 1.25-pound tray packages containing chicken breasts labeled “Empire KOSHER NATURAL Chicken Breasts, Boneless & Skinless” with case code 7888 and “Sell By” date 11/16/17.

42,147 Pounds Of Ready-To-Eat Chicken Products Recalled

Another day, another recall, folks. It seems like it’s happening a whole lot lately!
If you are somebody who often buys ready-to-eat meat products, you putt a lot of trust in the company you are buying from that their products are absolutely safe to eat.
Unfortunately, however, WFSP Foods, LLC was forced to recall 42,147 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken breast products due to the meat being undercooked.
That is seriously dangerous!
The products potentially contain bacterial pathogens as a result of the undercooking, according to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, per Fox News.
If you have any ready-to-eat grilled chicken breast items that were produced on March 29, 2017, and/or April 7, 2017, chilling in your freezer or fridge, the following products are included in the recall:
- 9-pound foodservice cases containing 8 poly film packages of “CHEF’S LINE ALL NATURAL FIRE GRILLED CHICKEN BREAST” with product code 22586, produced on 04/07/17, and Best by date 06/14/17.
- 9-pound foodservice cases containing 8 poly film packages of “saladworks FULLY COOKED FLAME GRILLED CHICKEN BREAST FILLETS” with product code 22500, produced on 03/29/17 and Use by date 06/05/17.
The case is rated as a Class I recall, which means that the risk these products pose to consumers health is high; if you ingest the product, there is a reasonable probability that you might be inflicted with serious adverse health consequences. The worst-case scenario, of course, is that eating an undercooked meat product with bacterial pathogens could result in death.
While nobody has confirmed reports of any illnesses or adverse reactions after eating the products, the USDA did say, per Fox News, that the firm received multiple customer complaints abut the chicken appearing not to be cooked all the way through, resulting in the recall.
If you have these products on hand, please toss them out or return them to the place of purchase for a refund. It’s not worth risking your health!Chicken, LLC, raw chicken, ready-to-eat, recall, WFSP Foods
This Girl Is Trolling The Internet With Her Raw Chicken
By Cooking Panda
Ugh. This is so gross.
Pretty much everybody knows that while some meats are acceptable to be eaten raw — such as fish or cow — other meats really need to be cooked all the way through in order to ensure that they are safe to consume, not to mention tasty — like chicken, for example.
Everybody knew that, right? Right?
Apparently, Morgan Jane Gibbs missed the memo that raw chicken is bad chicken, because she posted her raw chicken recipe to Facebook, and didn’t seem to be joking.
“Just made chicken medium rare chicken strips. They’re so good can’t believe I’ve never tried it like this before,” she wrote on the post, adding:
“Can’t wait to dig into this with my homemade salad and veges. #healthy #newyearsresolution #clean #cleaneating.”
Luckily, the post received comments that seemed to aim at educating Gibbs about the danger of consuming raw chicken.
“Haha I like my chicken with less salmonella,” said one commenter.
“Good for food poisoning that’s all,” commented another.
“This post has made me feel really ill,” concluded somebody else.
We can only hope that this was just an attempt on Gibbs’ part to go viral in the new year, and that she did not actually consume the chicken as pictured. We also advise anybody reading to please refrain from consuming raw or undercooked chicken, as it could potentially be very dangerous!
