Decatur, Alabama-based Wayne Farms is recalling approximately 438,960 pounds of frozen, fully cooked chicken products that may be contaminated with small pieces of metal. According to the Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, the items in question were shipped to distributors, restaurants and further processing locations across the country.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them.
