Wayne Farms of Decatur, Alabama, has issued an urgent recall of about six tons of ready-to-eat chicken products. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the recall is due to a possible processing defect that allowed the potential survival of bacterial pathogens in the processed chicken.
The problem came to light when a customer complained to the company that the product appeared undercooked. To date, there have been no reports of illness or injury related to consumption of the chicken in question.
