OK Food recalling nearly a million pounds of breaded chicken

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - OK Food is recalling nearly a million pounds of breaded chicken after people found metal objects in their food.

The manufacturer sells the chicken under several brand names including Walmart's Great Value.

The ready-to-eat (RTE) breaded chicken items were produced on various dates from Dec. 19, 2016 through March 7, 2017.

According to the USDA, the problem was discovered on March 21, 2017 after OK Foods Inc. received five consumer complaints stating that metal objects were found in the ready-to-eat chicken products and by FSIS inspection personnel during verification activities.

"After an internal investigation, the firm identified the affected product and determined that the objects in all the complaints came from metal conveyor belting," USDA officials said.
