Alabama Poultry Farm Recalls Products
(2008-03-15)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - A north Alabama poultry firm has voluntarily recalled about 943,000 pounds of various fresh and frozen poultry giblets and fresh carcasses with giblets inserted, the USDA says.

Officials said a potential health risk required the recall.

The recall by Cagle's Inc. of Collinsville includes its giblets products produced from Dec. 3rd of 2007 through Wednesday and distributed to institutions and restaurants nationwide.

The recall was announced Saturday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The problem was traced to the company's new equipment. Although carcasses were condemned, FSIS could not verify that the associated viscera, including the giblets, were condemned and diverted for inedible purposes, and they are therefore adulterated.

No reports of illness related to the products have been received by the government.
