Consumer complaints spark recall of frozen chicken entrées

Consumer complaints have spurred Sentry Foods Solutions LLC to recall more than 10 tons of frozen chicken entrées that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically glass or hard plastic.

The Tucker, GA, company produced and packaged the 21,570 pounds of frozen chicken products on March 17, March 18, April 30, and May 13, according to the recall notice on the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
