Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

(Washington-AP, Mar. 17, 2005 7:03 PM) _ Perdue Farms Inc. is recalling about 230,700 pounds of fully cooked chicken breast strips that went to Subway restaurants throughout the eastern United States because they may have been underprocessed, the Agriculture Department said Thursday.

There were no reports of illness from the chicken, the department's Food Safety and Inspection Service said.

The chicken strips were made during a five-day period in February and March and shipped to centers in Alabama, Florida, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia for distribution to Subway restaurants throughout the eastern United States.

"We are contacting all the operators who may have received the product," Perdue spokesman Joe Forsthoffer said.

The products being recalled are 10-pound cases of "SUBWAY FC CHICKEN BRST STRIPS." The cases contain the code "09365" or "09222." Each case also bears one of these packing dates: "5032," "5038," "5052," "5055" or "5070."

Perdue, which is based in Concord, N.C., discovered the problem, the Agriculture Department said.
