San Miguel Meats Has Recalled 152,000 pounds of fresh and frozen young chickens

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 PARA ASAR, SMALL CHICKEN WOG." Each box bears the establishment number "EST. P-4937" inside the USDA seal of inspection. The young chickens may then be individually displayed by each retail store.

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."

Consumers and media with questions about the recall may contact Salvador Flores, plant manager, at (626) 330-2359.
