Suter Company Recalls Bumble Bee Chicken Salad Kits

The Sycamore, Ill., company says the products may contain foreign materials; the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service classified this recall as having a low health risk.

The Suter Company, Inc., a Sycamore, Ill., establishment, is recalling approximately 72,000 pounds of canned chicken salad products that may contain foreign materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced on Dec. 5.

The products subject to recall (pdf) include:

  • 8.2-ounce packages of "Bumble Bee Lunch on the Run Chicken Salad Complete Lunch Kit." The package contains a 2.9-ounce can of Bumble Bee Chicken Salad along with crackers, mixed fruit, a cookie and a spoon. The package label indicates the product is "Mixed and Ready to Eat." The product package indicates a "Best-by" date of 07/11.
  • 3.5-ounce packages of "Bumble Bee Chicken Salad with Crackers." The package contains a 2.9-can of Bumble Bee Chicken Salad and crackers. The package label indicates the product is "Ready to Eat." The product package indicates a "Best-by" date of 01/12 or 02/12.

The cans of chicken salad bear the establishment number "P-169" inside the USDA mark of inspection and the lot code "0225XXQBC" printed on the package. The chicken salad products were assembled between Aug. 14 and 28, 2010, and shipped to distributors and retail stores nationwide.

The problem was discovered after consumer complaints about finding hard plastic in the product. The inspection service has not received any reports of injury at this time. Anyone concerned about an injury from consumption of this product should contact a physician.

USDA routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
