About the Wegman’s Chicken Recall
Inside the USDA mark of inspection, the recalled products have the establishment number “EST. or P-7567.” The recalled items were shipped to retail stores in New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
The recall seems to be the result of a miscommunication – the inspection found out that the establishment had produced the products outside the normally approved hours of operation due to a change in the production schedule.
Although there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions to the products, consumers are encouraged to contact their health care provider if they have any questions.
