West Liberty Foods is recalling approximately 34,075 pounds of grilled chicken breast products it supplied to Subway restaurants. The recall was made because the products may be contaminated with pieces of plastic, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on April 23.

The grilled chicken patties subject to the recall were produced on February 4, 2015. The products subject to recall is described as: 25-lb. cardboard boxes containing 5-5lb plastic bags of “SUBWAY FULLY COOKED GRILLED CHICKEN BREAST PATTY WITH RIB MEAT”

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 34349 or P-34349” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items produced had been shipped to Subway restaurants located in the states of Illinois, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Nebraska and Texas. West Liberty Foods has already contacted the restaurants that have been impacted in this recall.
The problem was discovered after West Liberty Foods received complaints from consumers who had found small pieces of white plastic in the chicken product.


FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
