Simmons Prepared Foods is recalling approximately 26,550 pounds of frozen TGI Fridays brand honey barbecue flavored boneless chicken bites that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of clear, hard plastic. The product, packed in 15-oz (425g) retail cartons, was produced during one shift on October 3, 2023, at the company’s plant in Van Buren, Arkansas, reported the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

“We are working closely with regulatory authorities and the affected customer, Kraft Heinz, to expedite this product recall,” reads a statement posted at Simmons Prepared Foods’ website. “This issue was discovered through two individual customer complaints to the affected customer. There has been no reports of adverse customer reactions due to this issue.”

The boneless chicken bites were shipped to retail stores across the United States. Product packaging displays a KL3K03 lot code and “Best By” date of 12/26/2024 located on the side panel. It also bears a “P-20287” establishment number inside the USDA mark of inspection.

FSIS is concerned that some of the packages may be in consumers’ freezers. Persons who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. They should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase for a refund.
