The problem was identified when an employee of the U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) saw foreign material in a chicken breast while performing routine duties, according to a recall notice issued Saturday.

Products affected by the recall include:

  • 4 to 5.25-lbs. tray packages containing chicken breasts labeled “Empire KOSHER NATURAL Chicken Breasts, Boneless & Skinless”
  • 1 to 1.25-lbs. tray packages containing chicken breasts labeled “Empire KOSHER NATURAL Chicken Breasts, Boneless & Skinless”
  • 2.5-lbs. tray packages containing chicken breasts labeled “Empire KOSHER NATURAL Chicken Breasts, Boneless & Skinless”
  • 1 to 1.25-lbs. tray packages containing chicken breasts labeled “Empire KOSHER NATURAL Chicken Breasts, Boneless & Skinless”
  • 1 to 1.25 –lbs. tray packages containing chicken breasts labeled “Empire KOSHER NATURAL Chicken Breasts, Boneless & Skinless”

If you purchased any of these products, you should not eat them, and either discard them immediately or return them to the point of purchase for a refund.

Although no source for the contamination has yet been identified, it likely occurred somewhere in the manufacturing process. This commonly occurs when a piece of machinery breaks off or sheds metal onto the production line.

To date, no injuries or other incidents have been associated with the Empire Kosher Poultry recall.
