This latest recall notice from the USDA is because pieces of hard, clear plastic have been reported underneath the breading of a very popular frozen chicken product. 

There have been several recalls in recent months for various frozen chicken products. Not all recalls are for the same thing, of course. When it comes to products like this, it's usually 'foreign matter' being found in the product or some sort of bacteria being detected.

For this latest recall, the USDA states: "Simmons Prepared Foods Inc., a Van Buren, Ark. establishment, is recalling approximately 26,550 pounds of TGI Fridays boneless chicken bites products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of clear, hard plastic."

  • The problem was discovered via consumer complaints.
  • Clear, hard plastic was found under the breading of the boneless chicken bites.
  • These products were shipped to retailers nationwide
  • There have been no reported injuries yet due to this problem.
  • The products involved in this recall were produced on Oct. 3, 2023
  • There is a high likelihood that recalled products are still in household freezers.
