Wayne Farms is recalling approximately 4,059 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products due to undercooking, resulting in the potential survival of bacterial pathogens in the products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.
The ready-to-eat grilled chicken breast items were produced on August 1 and August 29 at a facility in Oakwood, Georgia. The following products are subject to recall:

- 22.5-lb. foodservice bulk cases of “Fully Cooked Flame Grilled Chicken Breast Fillets” with case code 22423.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 45411” or “P-45411” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail stores in Florida, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri and North Dakota.
The problem was discovered during a routine records review by the company when it was noted that a similar product had an appearance of being undercooked.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
