Maryland Firm Recalls Chicken for Possible Contamination with Metal

        WASHINGTON, Feb. 28, 2002 – Allen Family Foods Inc., a Cordova, Md., firm, is voluntarily recalling approximately 460 pounds of chicken that may be contaminated with a small piece of metal, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

        The product subject to recall is "Allen’s FOR ROTISSERIE CHICKEN, CLASSIC FLAVOR Fresh Young Chicken, WITHOUT NECK & GIBLETS, 2 ˝ SIZE (UN-TRUSSED)." The product is packaged in 40-pound boxes. Each box bears the establishment number "P-171" inside the USDA seal of inspection. The sell by date "03/08" is also listed on the label.

        The chicken was produced on Feb. 20, and distributed to retail stores in Boston, Mass., where the product is cooked and sold to consumers.

        "Because of the potential for injury, we want consumers to be aware of the recall," said Margaret O’K. Glavin, acting FSIS administrator. "Consumers should ask their retail grocery store delis if they are using the recalled product."

        Allen Family Foods, Inc. discovered the problem and notified FSIS.
