MIH Marketing and Sales is recalling approximately 662,049 pounds of various meat and poultry products that were stored under insanitary conditions, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The problem was discovered while the FSIS Office of Investigation, Enforcement and Audits (OIEA) was conducting routine food defense surveillance activities. The FSIS OIEA investigator discovered that the product was being stored under insanitary conditions, including rodent activity, in the storage areas of the property. FSIS and the establishment detained the remaining product. The items subsequently tested positive for alkaline phosphatase, demonstrating evidence of possible fecal matter.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

The raw chicken breast fillet, chicken thigh, chicken drum, chicken wing, and chicken tender items were produced by various federal establishments and sold at 17 retail stores located in Arkansas between April 10, 2016 and September 10, 2016. These products were in clear packages weighting approximately 5 pounds each.

In addition, various retail meat and poultry products sold at Chicken City Retail stores are being recalled. These products are in clear retail bags with a sales sticker that include the sell-by date between October 30, 2016 and March 19, 2017.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact John Hilger, Owner of MIH Marketing and Sales, at (501) 278-7041.
