Additional information:
The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following Chicken are subject to this recall:

  • Cookin’ Good Whole Young Chickens, sold in 80-pound cardboard boxes, containing approximately 28, 2.5-pound ice-packed, sealed packages complete with giblets and necks.

According to the USDA, the Chickens were produced September 3, 2014 and then shipped to a New York distributor for re-sale and foodservice use in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The packages bear the establishment number “P-764” on the box.

The company discovered the problem when a plant employee checking whole bird temperatures noticed variations in the product. Upon further investigation it was found that a plant worker turned the wrong water valve, using potable water instead of chill water in the system’s chiller. The company notified FSIS of the incident. Product found in the firm’s warehouse was destroyed. However nine cases inadvertently shipped into commerce.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
