Simmons Prepared Foods recalls 5,850 pounds of chicken

Published: Updated:

VAN BUREN, Ark. (AP) – Arkansas-based Simmons Prepared Foods says it’s recalling 5,850 pounds of frozen chicken products that may have been breaded with flour contaminated with E. coli bacteria.

Simmons says the frozen, uncooked chicken tenderloins were produced on Jan. 25 and sold in bags labeled “Simmons Uncooked Chicken Tenderloin Fritters” and “Uncooked Chicken Breast Tenderloin Fritters.” The products were distributed in Arkansas for institutional use.

A recall notice from the U.S. Department of Agriculture says Simmons received notice last week that flour sold to the company had been recalled by General Mills because of the E. coli concern. The flour had been used to bread the chicken fritters sold by Simmons.

Simmons says there have been no illnesses or adverse reactions so far linked to its products.
