Farmerville, La. (SafetyAlerts) - United States Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service, (FSIS) said that ConAgra Poultry Company is recalling 18,000 pounds of frozen ready-to-eat chicken because the product may have been underprocessed, the U.S. Department of Agriculture?s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.
