US: Chicken recalled due to plastic and bone

Lucy's Enterprises is recalling approx. 13,776 pounds of frozen, ground chicken products that may contain foreign materials.

The US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced that the following products are subject to recall: 16-ounce packages of "Trader Joe's, Chile Lime Chicken Burgers," with the date code "3158" embossed on the side of the box. Each package contains four chicken burgers.

Each label bears "P-8276" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced on 10 November 2008, and were distributed to Trader Joe's supermarkets nationwide.

The problem was discovered after the company received consumer complaints about finding pieces of plastic and bone material in the product. FSIS has not received any consumer complaints or reports of injury at this time.
