Almost two million pounds of ready-to-eat-chicken are subject to a new recall because they may have been undercooked. The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Sunday that the recall affects products sold by National Steak & Poultry, an Oklahoma-based business, and sent to restaurants and other food service locations nationwide.
The scope of this recall expansion now includes a variety of ready-to-eat chicken products that were produced on various dates from August 20, 2016 through November 30, 2016. A list of the additional products subject to recall is listed here.
Below are the details of the originally recalled product:
