Schnuck Markets Recalls Certain Ready-to-Eat Chicken Breast Products

US supermarket chain Schnuck Markets has issued a recall of around 62 pounds of undercooked ready-to-eat chicken breast products that may have been contaminated with bacteria.

According to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the undercooked grilled chicken products may potentially contain bacterial pathogens.

The production and packaging of the undercooked Butter Garlic Marinated Grilled Chicken Breast items took place on 8 November 2016.

Ready-to-eat grilled chicken labeled as “Butter Garlic Marinated Grilled Chicken Breast” and have a sell date of 13 November 2016 has been recalled.

FSIS has said that the products recalled display establishment number “EST. 13562” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The products in question were delivered across 26 Schnuck retail outlets in Missouri, Indiana and Illinois.

The food watchdog identified that the affected products were bought by customers from the Deli or Chef’s Express service case featuring a purchase date of 9 or 10 November on the product label.

An internal investigation from Schnuck Markets on 10 November 2016 stumbled across the contamination problem following a complaint from a consumer who had purchased the undercooked chicken breast.

FSIS has said that there have been no confirmed reports of anyone getting adverse health effects due to consumption of the chicken breasts. It added that anyone who had consumed the product and concerned about a health effect should seek medical advice.

As a norm for most of the recalled food products, FSIS has advised customers who may have bought the undercooked products not to consume and throw them away or return them from where they had bought.

In another development, Schnuck has advised its customers to return certain Kraft Heinz Smart Ones Chocolate Chip Cooke Dough Sundae frozen Desserts for possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
