FSIS and Simmons Prepared Foods, Inc Announce a Two Million Pound Poultry Product Recall

Wed, 06 Nov 2019 16:40:23 CST

FSIS and Simmons Prepared Foods, Inc Announce a Two Million Pound Poultry Product Recall Simmons Prepared Foods, Inc., a Gentry, Ark. establishment, is recalling approximately 2,071,397 pounds of poultry products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.


The poultry items were produced from Oct. 21, 2019 through Nov. 4, 2019. This spreadsheet contains a list of the products subject to the recall.


The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-1949,” “P- 486” or “P-5837” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to institutions in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania.
                                 

The problem was discovered by Simmons Prepared Foods, Inc. establishments during further processing.


There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.


FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in institutional freezers. Institutions that have purchased these products are urged not to serve them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.


FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.


Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Donald Miller, senior vice president of sales at Simmons Prepared Foods, Inc., at (888) 831-7007. Members of the media with questions about the recall can contact Donny Epp, senior director of communications at Simmons Prepared Foods, Inc., at (479) 215-2626.
