Bits & Pieces: Barber Foods Recalls Frozen, Stuffed Chicken

January 25, 2009

Barber Foods (Portland, ME) announced on January 20th that the Company was recalling approximately 6,050 pounds of frozen, stuffed chicken products after learning that the food items may contain pieces of plastic. The problem was discovered as a result of a consumer complaint.

The following items were recalled by Barber:
  • Market Day® Stuffed Chicken Breast Roast with Rib Meat, with Cranberry and Sage Stuffing (2.5-pound packages): Est. No. P-276, Product Code 1037, Cat. C, Date code 31881 (located at the top of the ingredient statement on the box).

The two recalled items were produced on November 13th. They were distributed by Market Day in the Midwest and Eastern United States, and by Barber Foods to institutional food service establishments and as samples nationwide.

As this is a Class II recall, USDA will not be posting a retail distribution list. Consumers can contact Market Day (1-877-632-7753) and Barber Foods (1-800-577-2595) directly to request more information.
