AdvancePierre Foods, an Enid, Okla. establishment, is recalling approximately 15,328 pounds of frozen, fully cooked country fried steak products because they may contain foreign materials—pieces of plastic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.
The products subject to recall include 22.75-oz. pouches of "Fast Classics Country Fried Steaks" and 8.5-lb. cases, each containing six pouches of "Fast Classics Country Fried Steaks." All products were produced on Dec. 21, 2012. The packages bear the establishment number "EST. 2260Y" in the USDA mark of inspection on the front of the package and a "BEST BY" date of March 21, 2014 stamped on a label on the back of the package along with the case code of 1523560202.
The products were distributed to one retail chain in Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Wyoming.
The firm alerted FSIS after the company received complaints from two customers who each received an oral injury upon eating the product. The problem was a result of a piece of a plastic bin being introduced into the production process and then being broken into smaller pieces.
