The recall was announced by the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

Approximately 554,090 pounds of poultry products are being recalled, that were produced between 17-18 September 2015. The items were shipped to processing facilities in Georgia and Louisiana.

The problem was discovered when the firm received a complaint from a processing facility which found metal shavings in the product. The establishment determined that the contamination occurred due to a malfunction with an ice-making machine used during production.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products, but the recall is happening to prevent any illness.
