    The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Wednesday a massive voluntary recall of Simmons Prepared Foods fresh and frozen chicken products because of concerns that some products were contaminated with pieces of metal.

    The recall includes about 2,071,397 pounds of poultry produced from Oct. 21 through Nov. 4. The products were shipped to stores in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Georgia, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania, according to a press release.

    The affected products’ inspection marks include the establishment numbers “P-1949,” “P- 486” or “P-5837.” Consumers can view the product labels here.
