According to the USDA, ConAgra Foods, a Russellville, Ark. establishment, has recalled certain batch/lots of frozen Chicken and Beef Entrée Products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal according to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”).

The metal fragments range in size between 2 and 9 millimeters (mm) in diameter, and are curled, malleable and shiny. The metal fragments may be embedded in the sauce contained within the frozen entrée products.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 233” or “EST. P-115” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distributors and retail locations in Arkansas, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Vermont and Wisconsin.

The problem was discovered July 1, 2016, when an establishment employee noticed metal fragments while dispensing sugar from a supplier for sauce formulation during processing. The resulting sauce is a component in the frozen entrée products.

If plastic or metal fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Beef and/or Chicken, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you have any questions about this recall notification, please contact the company at 1-800-252-0634.
