For more information, consumers can call Donald Miller, senior vice president of sales at Simmons Prepared Foods, Inc., at (888) 831-7007.

Simmons, with headquarters in Siloam Springs, has made a decision to recall 2,071,397 pounds of poultry products because of the contamination.

Simmons Prepared Foods, Inc, based in Arkansas, is recalling 2,071,397 pounds of products such as ready-to-cook chicken wings, chicken breast meat, halal chicken leg quarters and chicken tenderloins.

The recalled products have the establishment number P-1949, P- 486 or P-5837 written inside the USDA mark of inspection. "These items were shipped to institutions in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Minnesota, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania", a news release states. Unfortunately, the recall falls under the "Class 1" classification, meaning there is a "reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death".

KFOR reports that the problem was discovered at Simmons establishments during processing.

The agency is urging the institutions that have purchased these products to either throw them away or have them returned. "That is why Simmons has issued a precautionary and voluntary recall", Simmons said in a statement.

According to the FDA, there have not been any cases of injury or illness reported with respect to consumption of the chicken.
