Additional information:
The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following Chicken & Vegetable Potstickers were produced on July 22, 2021 and are subject to recall:

  • Ling Ling Chicken & Vegetable Potstickers, sold in 4.2-pound plastic pouches with a batch/lot code of 1911203 and a “best buy” [sic] date code of 22 OCT 2022

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Chicken & Vegetable Potstickers can be found on the Web site above.

These Chicken & Vegetable Potstickers were known to be sent to distribution centers in California and Washington and from there, sent to retailer locations throughout US states, although it is always possible these food products had wider distribution outside the country. When in doubt, please contact the manufacturer for specific product information.

According to the USDA, the Chicken & Vegetable Potsticker products subject to recall bear establishment number “P20069” printed on the back of the package. The recall was initiated after Ajinomoto Foods received consumer complaints reporting both clear flexible and clear hard plastic fragments had been found in the Chicken and Vegetable Potsticker products. As a direct result of this suspected defect, you should neither serve nor consume the recalled Potstickers identified above.

In general, if glass, 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.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure small children and pets can’t access the suspect food.

Proposed Remedy:
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Ling Ling Chicken & Vegetable Potstickers, 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 a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat choking, oral injury, internal ingestion, GI tract laceration damage and bowel obstruction.
