Following a consumer complaint, Willow Tree Poultry Farm is recalling more than 52,000 pounds of chicken salads and dips because of potential contamination with foreign materials.

Specifically, the products may contain pieces of hard white plastic, according to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The 26 tons of chicken products were produced on Aug. 10 through Aug 13 and have expiration dates into the second week of September. Consequently there is concern that consumers may have unused portions of the salads and dips in their homes.
