The discovery of hard plastic inside packages prompted a nationwide recall of 72,000 pounds of canned chicken salad, one of several recalls involving poultry and meat products issued through U.S. food safety authorities in recent days.
The Suter Company is recalling 8.2-ounce packages of the "Bumble Bee Lunch on the Run Chicken Salad Complete Lunch Kit" and 3.5-ounce packages of "Bumble Bee Chicken Salad with Crackers," according to a statement released Sunday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.
While the company is headquartered in Sycamore, Illinois, its products are sold from coast to coast. The recalled products - which have a August 2011 "best-by" date for the lunch kit, and February 2012 corresponding date for the cracker package - were put together and shipped out to distributors and stores between August 14 and 28 of this year.
