TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on Thursday, March 23 that it is recalling 933,272 pounds of breaded chicken products from the OK Food, Inc. out of Oklahoma City, OK.  

According to the FSIS release, the recall is due to contamination from 'extraneous materials', specifically metal pieces found in the products.  The problem was discovered on Tuesday, March 21, after OK Foods, Inc. received five consumer complaints about metal objects being found in ready-to-eat chicken products, as well as by FSIS inspection personnel during verification activities.  

After an internal investigation, OK Foods, Inc. determined that the pieces came from metal conveyor belting, according to the release.  

Products subject to this voluntary recall were produced from Dec. 19, 2016 to March, 7, 2017 and include the following:
