The issue came to light on March 21 after five customers complained that they found metal objects in the breaded chicken products, the FSIS said. An internal investigation found that the metal objects came from metal conveyor belting.

FSIS said there have been no confirmed reports of “adverse reactions” and urged consumers to throw away or return the product.breaded chicken
