Overhill Foods & Maxi Canada each recalls breaded chicken products

Bones in frozen chicken bites? Breadcrumbs that might cause an allergic reaction coating your chicken nuggets? Doesn’t sound yummy.

And that’s why several foods, including some kid-marketed foods brand-named “yummy” or “Yummy,” got pulled off supermarket shelves nationwide in separate, unrelated recalls on Saturday.

Both recalls were voluntary. Consumers with the products can either return them to the place of purchase for a refund or toss them.

First, about the bone-in chicken bites. Overhill Farms recalled 54,630 pounds of its chicken bites after hearing from customers who found bone where they expected none.

The products involved are 3-ounce boxes of yummy spoonfuls chicken carrot bites with Best by dates of 02/01/18, 02/09/18 and 4/26/18; yummy spoonfuls chicken sweet potato bites, Best By 02/01/18 and 02/09/18; and yummy spoonfuls chicken broccoli bites, Best By 08/30/17, 02/20/18 and 4/10/18.

Also covered are 30-pound bulk cases of Overhill Farms Fully Cooked Organic Chicken Broccoli Bites Chicken and Vegetable Patty, packed on 8/30/16; Overhill Farms Fully Cooked Organic Chicken Carrot Bites Chicken Patties with Carrots and Cauliflower, packed on 2/9/17; and Overhill Farms Fully Cooked Organic Chicken Sweet Potato Bites Chicken Patties with Sweet Potatoes, Quinoa & Peas, packed on 2/9/17 and 4/25/17.

The breadcrumbs, which might be part of the stream of recalls from milk getting into the breadcrumbs from a supplier named as Newly Weds Foods. Food manufacturers who didn’t know about the milk didn’t declare it among their ingredients, a problem for those with milk allergies.

A statement from Newly Weds Foods e-mailed to the Miami Herald read:

“Out of an abundance of caution, Newly Weds Foods, Inc. voluntarily recalled specific lot codes of Cracker Meals and Blended Bread Coatings due to the potential presence of undeclared milk from cross-contact during the manufacturing process. Some specific non-dairy NWF Cracker Meal products made in the Watertown, MA. facility were discovered to have a small amount of dairy present. The root cause has been identified and corrective actions have been implemented.”

The USDA recall announcement said Saturday’s recall followed Maxi Canada being told by “an ingredient supplier that the breading products used in the recalled products potentially contained undeclared milk.”
