PA food processor recalls chicken for Staphylococcal Enterotoxin contaminationMurry’s Inc., based in Lebanon, PA, has issued a recall of approximately 31,689 pounds of gluten free breaded chicken products that may be contaminated with Staphylococcal enterotoxin, according to USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The recalled products contain a best by date of Aug. 9, 2015.

Specific products recalled include: 12-oz. boxes of “Bell & Evans Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets;” 10.5-oz. boxes of “Bell & Evans Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast.”

FSIS said the Colorado Department of Agriculture discovered the problem during a retail surveillance and sampling program funded by the USDA at a Federal Emergency Response Network lab.

According to FSIS, Staphylococcal enterotoxins are fast acting, sometimes causing illness in as little as 30 minutes. Symptoms—including nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea—usually develop within one to six hours after eating contaminated food.

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “P-516” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products were shipped to retail locations nationwide.  

No reports of illness have been reported to either FSIS or the company.
