The USDA warned that 195,597 pounds of P.F. Chang's frozen chicken and beef entrĂ©es may be contaminated with pieces of metal. A recall was issued Friday (July 15). The entrĂ©es include P.F. Chang's spicy chicken, Mongolian-style beef and General Chang's chicken.
The sauce for the frozen meals, according to an USDA press release, may contain "metal fragments that range in size between 2 and 9 millimeters in diameter, and are curled, malleable and shiny."
All the recalled frozen items, produced by ConAgra Food in Russellville, Ark., are marked "EST. 233" or "EST. P-115" inside the USDA inspection mark.
The recall is a Class I recall, which means "a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death."
So far, no one has been injured by the contaminated food.
