Oberto’s Brands, a Kent, Wa. establishment, is recalling approximately 57,578 pounds of chicken strip products due to company quality issues, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced. 

The products subject to recall include 3-, 5.75- and 16-oz.  film bags of “Smokey Sweet BBQ Style Chicken Strips” and 2.75-, 3-, 5.75-, 9- and 16-oz. film bags of “Spicy Buffalo Style Chicken Strips.”

The Smokey Sweet BBQ Style Chicken Strips were first produced on May 14, 2014 and last packaged on July 28, 2014. The Spicy Buffalo Style Chicken Strips were first produced on May 16, 2014 and last packaged on August 6, 2014. The product bears the establishment number “P4837” on the package. The product was sent to retail establishments nationwide as well as internet sales.

The problem was discovered by the company. A sister establishment noticed bloated packages and alerted the company to the problem. The plant determined that the increased water activity is due to “an undetected process deviation.”  The establishment further stated the product met all critical limits during production. The company has determined that this a quality control issue and that there are no food safety hazards.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
