WASHINGTON, July 6, 2016 - ConAgra Foods, a Russellville, Ark. establishment, is recalling approximately 3,806 pounds of frozen chicken and beef entr?products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The metal fragments range in size between 2 and 9 millimeters (mm) in diameter, and are curled, malleable and shiny. The metal fragments may be embedded in the sauce contained within the frozen entr?products.

The frozen chicken and beef entr?items were produced on June 13, 2016 and June 22, 2016. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF only)]

  • 22-oz. plastic bagged meal packages of "P.F. Chang's Home Menu Brand Signature Spicy Chicken." with "Use By" date of 6/08/17 and case code 5006616500.
  • 22-oz. plastic bagged meal packages of "P.F. Chang's Home Menu Brand Mongolian Style Beef." with "Use By" date of 6/17/17 and case code 5006617400.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number "EST. 233" inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distributors and retail locations in Arkansas, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Vermont, and Wisconsin.

The problem was discovered July 1, 2016, when an establishment employee observed metal fragments while dispensing sugar from a supplier for sauce formulation during processing. The resulting sauce is a component in the frozen entr?products.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions or injuries due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact 1-800-252-0634. Members of the media with questions about the recall can contact Kristine Mulford, Manager of Communications, at (312) 549-5522.
