The recalled Willow Tree chicken products were pulled from the market after a customer complaint led to the discovery that the foods may contain pieces of hard white plastic.

At the time the recall was announced on Aug. 24, there had been no reports of illness or injury related to consumption of the recalled products.

If you have the recalled foods at home, don’t eat them.
