[November 14, 2016]  Schnuck Markets Inc., is recalling approximately 62 pounds of ready-to-eat grilled 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 Sunday.

The Butter Garlic Marinated Grilled Chicken Breast items were produced and packaged on November 8, 2016. The following products are subject to recall:

  • Ready-to-eat grilled chicken containing the label of “Butter Garlic Marinated Grilled Chicken Breast” with a sell date of November 13, 2016.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 13562” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to 26 Schnuck retail locations in Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana.

Customers purchased the affected product from the Deli or Chef’s Express service case and would contain a purchase date of November 9 or 10 on the label.

The problem was discovered on November 10, 2016 by an internal investigation conducted by the firm after it received a consumer complaint regarding the purchase of undercooked chicken breast.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse health effects due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a health effect should contact a healthcare provider.

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.
