(November 13, 2013) Fran’s Fryers of Milford is recalling about 250 pounds of raw poultry products that were produced without federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Wednesday.
The recalled products include two-pound packages of Boneless Dark 2# Chicken Leg Meat, two- and five-pound packages of Chicken Breast Tenders, three- and five-pound packages of Ground Turkey 5#, five-pound packages of Cut Up Fryer and five-pound packages of Whole Fryers.
The packages all show the establishment number “P 20784” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The poultry products were produced on Nov. 11 and were shipped to various retailers in Texas, the USDA said.
No reports of illness have been received, but the USDA recall notice classified the health risk as high.
“The problem occurred due to a miscommunication between the company and FSIS inspection program personnel assigned to the establishment regarding the need for inspection coverage on the federal holiday. The company produced product without the presence of inspection program personnel,” the USDA said in a press release.
