Pilgrim's Pride, the largest chicken producer in the U.S., is recalling more than 4.5 million pounds of chicken products that may be contaminated, according the the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Whole-grain breaded nuggets, patties, breakfast patties, tenderloins and popcorn-style varieties may be contaminated with "extraneous materials," including plastic, wood, rubber and metal, the agency announced Monday.
The products were sold in stores under the Gold Kist Farms, Pierce and Sweet Georgia brands. The USDA posted a complete listing of the products being recalled on their website.
There have been no confirmed reports of health problems related to the chicken products, the USDA said.
The agency advises that consumers who find affected products either discard them or return them to Pilgrim's Pride.
