Undercooked Deli Chicken Recalled

A Milwaukee-based company with an establishment in Kenosha, WI, is recalling approximately 360 pounds of deli breaded chicken breasts because they may have been undercooked, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Wednesday.

 

Roundy’s Supermarkets Inc. was notified of the problem when a consumer complained. The company believes one tray of the product did not undergo final cooking.

There have been no reports of illness.

 

The recall is for 5-lb. cases, each containing 10 pieces of “CHEF’S COLLECTION CHICKEN MILANESE BREAST,” bearing the item code “037496,” and the lot code “171589-2561.”

Each case bears the establishment number “P-33997″ inside the USDA mark of inspection. The recalled products were produced on Sept. 13, 2011, and sold to retail establishments in Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The chicken breasts were sold to consumers at deli counters, and the original case branding and identification numbers were not transferred at the deli counters to consumer packages.

While the deli chicken is no longer available for purchase, consumers who may have purchased it for later consumption are urged to discard the product.

The retail distribution list is available on FSIS’ website at:  www.fsis.usda.gov/FSIS_Recalls/

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact the company’s Director of Public Affairs, Vivian King, at 414-231-5555.
