Arkansas-based poultry products distributor Simmons Food has recalled over 2 million pounds of contaminated poultry, including products that were shipped to stores in Arkansas and Oklahoma. Each of the recalled products has the establishment number P-1949, P-486 or P-5837.

The agency noted that some of the chicken products might be frozen.

FSIS designated the recall as Class I, meaning "a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death". These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

The recalled chicken items were produced from October 21 through November 4.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

KFOR reports that the problem was discovered at Simmons establishments during processing.

To date, there have been no confirmed reports of bad reactions as a result of consuming the products.

Questions about the recall can be directed the Donald Miller, Simmons Prepared Foods' senior vice president of sales, at 888-831-7007.

These products were shipped to Alabama and Georgia.

There have been no illnesses linked to the berry recall. "That is why Simmons has issued a precautionary and voluntary recall", Simmons said in a statement.
