Chicken bites intended for toddlers are being recalled from stores nationwide after bones were found, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said in a statement Saturday.
More than 54,000 pounds of chicken bites of California-based Overhill Farms are being recalled for the potential threat. There are no reports of illness or injury, but it is Class I recall with a "high" health risk.
The affected frozen chicken bites were produced on Aug. 30, 2016, Feb. 1, 2017, Feb. 9, 2017 and April 25, 2017. It involves 3-ounce, "yummy spoonful" boxes intended for young kids and 30-pound bulk cases of chicken bites that come with broccoli, carrot or sweet potato.
The FSIS is urging consumers who have the affected products not to consume them. They should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase.
