A recall early this month of Pilgrim's Pride chicken has now been expanded. The new recall, announced on April 26, involves about 4.5 million pounds of chicken. This is in addition to the 41,000 pounds of chicken nuggets that the company previously announced were being recalled. All of the recalled chicken products are cooked.
The chicken is being recalled because consumers reported finding foreign materials including metal, plastic, rubber and wood in them. So far, however, there have been no reports of anyone being harmed by the materials.
