Minnesota-based poultry producer GNP has issued a recall of over 27 tons of chicken, with most of the products being pulled meats that were sold to food service outlets.


GNP, whose primary lines are it's Just BARE and Gold'n Plump brands, said the only retail brand affected in the recall is Just BARE Whole Chicken (UPC 024105594057), packaged in 4-pound poly bags. The company also stated that the products being recalled bare the code "P-322" inside the USDA Inspection Mark, and have a use by date of June 23rd. The company advised that those products should be disposed of or returned to the store where purchased for a refund.

The company said that a lab verified the foreign matter found in chicken appeared to be natural materials, including dirt. But because GNP couldn’t say for sure that the product was safe for consumption, a product recall was triggered. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the meats that are being recalled.
