Pilgrim’s Pride recalls chicken because it may contain rubber

Pilgrim’s Pride is recalling some chicken products because the chicken may contain rubber. According to the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the manufacturer is recalling 58,020 pounds of uncooked popcorn style chicken fritters.

A customer found rubber in the chicken

The company learned of the issue after a consumer complained they found white rubber in the chicken. The customer reported it to a Publix Super Market employee.

Chicken sent to Publix Super Markets in Florida

The frozen, breaded chicken products were sent to Publix Super Markets in Florida. The meat was intended for deli food service use, but FSIS officials are concerned people may have the chicken in their freezers.

The products in question are 20-pound boxes containing eight bags of Uncooked Popcorn Style Chicken Breast Chunk Fritters With Rib Meat. The product states it must be used by October 1, 2019. Inside the USDA mark of inspection, the establishment date will read P-7091A.

No one has gotten sick yet

No illnesses have been reported from the tainted chicken. However, the USDA has classified this as a Class I recall. A Class I poses a reasonable possibility of serious and even fatal health consequences.

Injured consumers can file product liability claims

If a defective product injured you, you may consider filing a product liability claim. A product defect can be caused by a defect in the design, a manufacturing defect or a defect in the warning.

To prove a product liability case, you must show the product suffered from one of these defects. Then you must prove you were injured, and the defect caused your injury. You also must prove you were using the product as intended.

Proving all the elements of product liability can be difficult. However, if a faulty product injured you, you may be able to pursue legal action against the manufacturer, the supplier or even the retailer.
