KUSA - The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment today announced a voluntary recall by AdvancePierre Foods of Enid, Okla. of frozen, fully cooked country fried steaks in 22.75-ounce pouches of "Fast Classics Country Fried Steaks" and 8.5-pound cases, containing six pouches of "Fast Classics Country Fried Steaks," because they may contain pieces of plastic.
The frozen steaks were distributed to retail stores in 29 states, including Colorado, and may have been available for purchase at Walmart stores.
The recalled packages bear the establishment number "EST.2260Y" in the USDA mark of inspection on the front of the package and a "BEST BY" date of March 21, 2014, stamped on a label on the back of the package along with the case code 1523560202.
The firm alerted USDA's Food Safety Inspection Service after the company received complaints from two customers who each received an oral injury upon eating the product. The problem originated when piece of a plastic bin was introduced during production and then was broken into smaller pieces. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a health care provider.
Consumers who may have purchased the recalled Fast Classics Country Fried Steaks should not consume the product, but instead return it to the point of purchase.
Consumers with questions about the recall may contact AdvancePierre Consumer Affairs at 855-328-8888. Media with questions about the recall should contact Jennifer Hutchison, company accounts director, at 312-573-5468 or 630-258-8752.
