In Washington, almost around 72,000 pounds of canned chicken salads have been recalled by the product suppliers after the U.S. Department of Agriculture after they have received a great number of concerns about plastic in the product. This was according to the statement released by USDA recently.

The Bumble Bee Foods, LLC said on Monday, in a separate release, said that the recall was voluntary and was initiated by the company’s supplier The Suter Company, Inc. The senior vice president for technical services and quality assurance of Bumble Bee, Steve Mavity, said that they have been working hand in hand with The Suter Company to help in the speeding up and recalling of all these products.

According to the USDA, Suter, which is located in Sycamore, Illinois, was recalling around 72,000 pounds of the canned chicken salad products that may be containing foreign materials.

The said problem was discovered after consumers complained of finding hard plastic in the canned chicken salad products, as the agency said. This recall included around 8.2 ounce packages of Bumble Bee Lunch on the Run Chicken Salad Complete Lunch Kit. In addition, 3.5 ounce packages of Bumble Bee Chicken Salad with Crackers were also recalled, as reported by the USDA.

The USDA release which includes this report is made available on the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service website.
