Wegmans recalls chicken produced without federal inspection

A grocery store that’s relatively new to the area has been forced to recall more than 1,100 pounds of chicken.

The USDA’s Food and Safety Inspection Service announced the recall of chicken produced at Wegmans stores, which affects three different types of chicken, due to a production schedule that had changed, causing the products to be produced outside of the inspection schedule.

In told, it’s estimated that 1,125 pounds of chicken are being recalled.

There have been no known or confirmed reports of any issues of the products being consumed.

The items affected include…

  • One-pound packages of vacuum-sealed "Wegmans Italian-Flavored Chicken Breast Cutlet" (Use-by date: 1/24)
  • One-pound packages of vacuum-sealed "Wegmans Brown Sugar Barbecue-Seasoned Chicken Breast Cutlet" (Use-by date: 1/15)
  • One-pound packages of vacuum-sealed "Wokery Sherry Chicken 27482" (Use-by date: 1/13)
  • Three-pound packages of vacuum-sealed "Wegmans Garlic and Fennel Whole Chicken Roaster" (Use-by date: 1/13)
