Pilgrim’s is again expanding a recall on poultry products processed at its facility in Waco, Texas.  The latest expansion includes 376,380 pounds of fully cooked chicken wing products.

The recall was first issued on April 7 to involve 40,780 pounds of cooked chicken products. It was expanded again on April 26 to bring the total to nearly 4.6 million pounds. The second expansion, issued on May 6, brought the total to more than 5.2 million pounds.
