I always enjoy a nice chicken salad sandwich, but I prefer mine without the hard plastic!

The USDA has announced a recall of canned chicken breast that was sold at Sams's Clubs under their Member's Mark Label. The chicken is said to have contained pieces of hard plastic, the source of which is unknown.

From The USDA:

The thermally processed, commercially sterile canned chunk chicken breast items were produced on Nov. 28 and Nov. 29, 2017. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF only)]

  • 12.5-oz. cans in a case containing 6 cans of “Member’s Mark PREMIUM Natural Chunk CHICKEN BREAST IN WATER” with lot code 17333, case code 9816 and a use-by date of Nov. 29, 2020.
  • 50-oz. cans in a case containing 6 cans of “Member’s Mark FOOD SERVICE PREMIUM Natural Chunk CHICKEN BREAST IN WATER” with lot code 17332, case code 9817 and a use-by date of Nov. 28, 2019.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-65” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail stores nationwide.

If you have any of these cans you should either throw them out or return them for a refund.

I contacted the local Sam's Club and they stated the products listed above were removed from shelves until new inventory arrives.
