BumbleBee Chicken Salad In Nationwide Recall

(CBS4) – It’s usually celery that makes a chicken salad crunchy. Not this time.

Hard plastic pieces were found in packages of Bumble Bee chicken salad products, prompting a recall of about 72,000 pounds of the stuff, according to the Bumble Bee web site.

The Illinois-based company voluntarily recalled two products:

8.2-ounce packs of Bumble Bee Lunch on the Run Chicken Salad Complete Lunch Kits with an August 2011 best-by date

3.5-ounce Bumble Bee Chicken Salad with Crackers Ready-to-Eat kits with a best-by date of February 2012.

The products were sold across the country.

There have been no reports of injury and there is a remote chance of serious health effects, according to the Department of Agriculture.

The products were shipped to distributors and stores in August, so if you’ve still got any sitting on your shelves, call the company at (800) 507-7828 for a refund.

The recall does not affect tuna, salmon and other seafood products, according to the company.
