FSIS designated the recall as Class I, meaning "a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death". Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider. The company is the 17th largest poultry producer in the United States.
Consumers in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Minnesota, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania should check their fridges for potentially contaminated poultry products, authorities say. Their establishment number reads "P-1949", "P- 486" or "P-5837" inside the USDA mark of inspection. But the USDA urged anyone who may have the products in their freezer to throw them away. When available, the retail distribution list (s) will be posted on the FSIS website.More news: South Africa beats England
