Whole frozen chickens recalled for possible contamination

Texas All Grass-Fed is recalling around 2,3000 whole frozen chickens due to processing issues that may have permitted the growth of Salmonella or other bacteria, the Texas Department of State Health Services announced.

Texas All Grass-Fed is a meat and poultry processor located in Sealy, Texas. The recalled product was distributed in the Houston, Dallas and Austin areas. The recalled chicken was also sold at the Texas All Grass-Fed store front in Sealy. 

DSHS says the risk of illness is low but urges everyone to discard the recalled product or return it to the place it was purchased.

According to DSHS, a recent records review found that the firm failed to document that it had taken steps to prevent or eliminate bacterial contamination from the chickens or document that the birds were properly cooled after processing.

No illnesses have been reported due to the recalled chicken. DSHS says anyone who did get sick after eating the recalled chicken should call their health care provider to report the possible exposure.
