People who eschew breaded chicken patties and nuggets often question what’s in the patties, but usually they’re afraid of animal parts that Americans don’t normally eat, or mysterious fillers. Yet another chicken product recall shows us that we should actually be concerned about pieces of production equipment in our chicken products, not mystery meats. Almost eleven tons of chicken patties have been recalled from the brand On-Cor.

This time, the company is OSI Industries out of Wisconsin, and the product in question is its On-Cor brand chicken patties. Customers have reported pieces of blue plastic in their patties, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that the contaminated products were manufactured “around the time a trim repair was made on belt material.” Yum.

Foreign objects in chicken products turn up in nuggets with frightening frequency, most often pieces of metal, rubber, or plastic that come from production equipment. It’s a reminder that our food does not, in fact, come from a grassy nugget farm.

These particular patties had a limited distribution area: they went to retail stores in Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Only the 35-ounce bulk pack is being recalled.

If you have a question about the products or the recall, call (844) 674-8100. THe company asks customers to throw the products away or return them to the store where they were purchased.
