Nearly 2 million pounds of chicken recalled over bacteria fears

National Steak and Poultry, an Oklahoma-based company, recently issued a recall of 1,976,089 pounds of chicken that may be contaminated with dangerous bacteria.

The company is recalling the products because of "possible undercooking, resulting in the potential survival of bacterial pathogens in the products," the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said in a press release on Sunday.

According to FSIS, the basis for the recall was discovered on November 28, "when a food service customer complained to the establishment that product appeared to be undercooked."

The recall includes a variety of ready-to-eat chicken products that were produced on various dates between August 20 and November 30, 2016.

A complete list of recalled products can be found here.

Consumers who have purchased these products are being urged not to consume them, but instead to throw them away or return them to their place of purchase for a refund.

Mars Inc has recalled chocolate bars and other products in 55 countries, mainly in Europe, after bits of plastic were found in a Snickers bar in Germany, the U.S. chocolate maker said on Tuesday. All of the recalled products, which include Mars, Snickers and Milky Way bars, were manufactured at a Dutch factory in Veghel, according to a Mars spokeswoman. The recall follows a January 8th complaint from a consumer in Germany, who said she found red plastic in a Snickers bar and sent it back to the company.
