Productos La Aguadillana, Inc., an Aguadilla, Puerto Rico establishment, is recalling approximately 35,870 pounds of breaded chicken patty products that may be contaminated with extraneous pieces of metal. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) made the announcement.

The 10-pound boxes of breaded chicken patties were produced on February 27 and March 1 and shipped to institutions in Puerto Rico. While the product was distributed to schools, it resulted from a commercial sale and was not part of food provided by USDA for the National School Lunch Program.

The problem was discovered on March 11 after the firm received a complaint from a school that received the product. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in school freezers. School programs that have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
