Los Angeles, CA (SafetyAlerts)
- U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said
San Miguel Meats has recalled
approximately 152,000 pounds of fresh and frozen young chickens, incorrectly
labeled as Cornish game hens.
The products being recalled are 9 to 19 lb. boxes of "LA REINA, GODORNIZ

The products were produced from Sept. 4, 2002 through Jan. 2, 2003 and
distributed to retail stores in southern California and Arizona.
"FSIS wants consumers to be aware of the recall," said Dr. Garry L. McKee,
FSIS administrator. "Customers who have concerns about the misbranding of
this product should return it to the point of purchase."
