They say these products may contain under-cooked chicken, resulting in the potential survival of bacterial pathogens in the products.

The issue was first discovered when customers complained that the products appeared undercooked. But luckily, there have been no confirmed reports of illness or negative reactions to the chicken yet. Regardless, the USDA urges anyone who has purchased one of these products not to eat them. They recommend throwing away the products or returning them to the store where they were purchased.
