Not unlike Bart Simpson’s bowl of Krusty-O’s, a certain food is providing the dangerous prospect of metal making its way into your meal.
The USDA has issued a release noting that ConAgra Foods is recalling multiple varieties of frozen meals from P.F. Chang’s for safety reasons. Roughly 3,806 pounds of frozen chicken and beef entrée products may have been contaminated with metal shards ranging from 2 and 9 millimeters in diameter and that has resulted in the company calling for consumers to either dispose of the product or return it to the store.
The products subject to the recall are the following:
22-oz. plastic bagged meal packages of “P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Brand Signature Spicy Chicken.” with “Use By” date of 6/08/17 and case code 5006616500.
22-oz. plastic bagged meal packages of “P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Brand Mongolian Style Beef.” with “Use By” date of 6/17/17 and case code 5006617400.
No injuries have been reported as of yesterday in connection to the potentially contaminated food, although consumers that have concerns they may have ingested a tainted product are still urged to contact a healthcare provider. The P.F. Chang’s frozen meals subject to the recall were sent to Arkansas, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Vermont, and Wisconsin.
