Inspectors to decide whether poultry can return to S. Korea commissaries

SOUTH KOREA - Forget the beef, where’s the chicken? Fresh poultry went missing at U.S. Forces Korea commissaries this summer and returned for a short time in September, but now the fowl possibly have run afoul again, according to the U.S. military and its South Korean chicken supplier.

Military food inspectors still are worried about the levels of bacteria in chicken from Moguchon, the commissaries’ South Korean supplier, according to the 106th Medical Detachment commander and the chicken company.

“A few weeks ago, the company that processes poultry for [the Defense Commisary Agency] voluntarily removed their product due to minor problems related to refrigeration and storage in their processing facility,” Col. Stanley Smith, the detachment commander, said in a written statement Friday.

“Plant personnel have been working over the last month in correcting the refrigeration and storage rooms and these problems are reported to be corrected,” he wrote.
