When we’re on the go, we many times grab something quick to take for lunch. Eating out everyday can have many negative consequences for our health and finances.
With this in mind, products like Bumble Bee’s Lunch on the Run are ways some people grab a quick bite for lunch.
Before you chomp down though, you should be aware of contamination from hard plastics in some Bumble Bee chicken salad lunch kits. This has in fact led to a recall of over 72,000 pounds of can chicken nationwide.
On December 5th, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection service issued a recall for all 8.2-oz Bumble Bee Lunch on the Run Chicken Salad Complete Lunch Kits with a best-by date of July, 2011. The recall went out after consumers complained of finding shards of plastic in their canned chicken salad. No injuries or deaths from this problem have been reported.
The recall also affects 3.5-oz packages of Bumble Bee Chicken Salad with Crackers with a best-by date of 01/2012 and 02/2012.
Each of these products contains a 2.9-oz can of Bumble Bee chicken that’s labeled “Ready to Eat.” Each of these products contains an establishment mark of P-169 in the USDA mark of inspection and a lot code of 0225XXQBC. These products were produced between August 4th and August 28th of this year by Bumble Bee Foods and the Suter Company at its plant in Sycamore, Illinois.
If you’ve purchased this product, you can call the Suter Company at (800) 507-7828 to obtain a refund or ask questions.
