Bumble Bee Chicken Salad Recall

 
Like all recalls, this is targeted to a specific product, made at a specific time and place.

Consumers found pieces of plastic in

(1)  the Bumble Bee Lunch on the Run Chicken Salad Complete Lunch Kit
(2)   Bumble Bee Chicken Salad with Crackers

Here's the language of the USDA news release  (Dec 5):
"8.2-ounce packages of "BUMBLE BEE LUNCH ON THE RUN CHICKEN SALAD COMPLETE LUNCH KIT." The package contains a 2.9-ounce can of Bumble Bee Chicken Salad along with crackers, mixed fruit, a cookie and a spoon. The package label indicates the product is "Mixed and Ready to Eat." The product package indicates a "Best-by" date of 07/11.


3.5-ounce packages of "BUMBLE BEE CHICKEN SALAD WITH CRACKERS." The package contains a 2.9-can of Bumble Bee Chicken Salad and crackers. The package label indicates the product is "Ready to Eat." The product package indicates a "Best-by" date of 01/12 or 02/12.

The cans of chicken salad bear the establishment number "P-169" inside the USDA mark of inspection and the lot code "0225XXQBC" printed on the package. "
Here's a page with pictures of the labels.

Take the time to check the specifics.  No reports of anyone being harmed as yet.
