3 meat recalls may put a damper on your cookout; what you need to know before firing up the grill
Three separate companies are recalling popular foods that will be at many cookouts this holiday weekend.
Kanani Foods is recalling 59 pounds of chicken products because they were not produced properly.
Officials say the items were not made under a fully implemented Ready-To-Eat Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points plan.
Inspectors say there are no records to show that critical times and temperatures had been met in the cooking and cooling of products.
The recalled products are as follows:
- 12 oz. bowls of “Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowls”
- 12 oz. bowls of “Orange Chicken Rice Bowls.”
The recalled products have the establishment number “P-46002” inside the USDA mark of inspection and “use by” dates of 6/30/14 through 7/4/14.

The chicken was produced on March 8, 10 and 11.
The products were sent to distribution centers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada and Utah.
Investigators say they found a link between the boneless skinless chicken breast and the illness.
The most common symptoms associated with the illness are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product.
