What to look for: Poultry
The next step after learning of a food recall is checking to see if you have the specific product in your own home. Is it in your pantry, refrigerator or freezer? Different types of products require you to look for different things.
Here is what to look for after you learn of a food recall:
What to look for
Fresh Poultry Products
-Establishment Number * (look for USDA inspection seal)
*The establishment number may appear within the circular inspection seal or elsewhere on packaging. For example, the establishment number could be printed on the lid of a can, or on the metal crimp on a package of fresh or frozen meat.
Match the details!
Match identifying marks such as product name, brand, container codes, and container size, establishment number, lot code, and date code with the recall notice details.
If the product details don't match the recall notice details then there is no need to be concerned or to take action.
The recall of one product does not mean all forms of that product are potentially a problem. If the recalled product is a fresh vegetable and you have a canned vegetable, then there is nothing to worry about. You should feel comfortable consuming that product.
If you find that you do have the specific product being recalled; do not open or consume it.
