Food Recall

Willow Tree Poultry Farm is recalling nearly 53,000 pounds of chicken salad and dip products due to a contamination issue. The food recall went into effect this week per the U.S. Department of Agriculture website.

As to the specifics of the contamination issue, some products may contain hard white plastic. The extent of the contamination at this point remains unknown. To date, there are no reports of adverse reactions due to any of the recalled products. Note that the issue doesn’t appear to be widespread. In fact, the recall came about in the wake of a lone consumer complaint that was made with the Food Safety and Inspection Service, an agency within the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
