The problem was discovered Tuesday after OK Foods received complaints of metal fragments in the chicken. An inspection by the U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) discovered the contamination during routine verification activities.

OK Foods later identified the contaminated chicken and determined that the metal fragments came from a conveyor belt used during processing.

Affected products were manufactured from Dec. 19, 2016 to March 7, 2017, and bear the establishment number “P-7092” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The chicken was shipped to retail locations and institutions across the U.S.
