DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

More than 40,000 pounds of chicken produced at a Decatur poultry facility have been recalled.

The USDA confirms two Wayne Farms chicken products were undercooked before they were shipped out. They're trying to track down all 42,147 pounds of the affected ready-to-eat chicken breasts.

Officials say this recall was initiated after a customer complaint.

The recalled chicken breasts were produced between March 29 and April 7.

The recalled items include: 

  • 9-pound food-service cases containing eight packages of Chef’s Line All Natural Fire Grilled Chicken Breast with product code 22586, produced on April 7, and best by date of June 14.
  • 9-pound food-service cases containing eight packages of Saladworks Fully Cooked Flame Grilled Chicken Breast Fillets with product code 22500, produced on March 29 and use by date June 5.  

The chicken products include the establishment number P-45411 inside the USDA mark of inspection.

See pictures of the products here.

If you encounter the affected products, you're urged to dispose of them or return them to the place of purchase.

A Wayne Farms spokesman said the products were shipped to an Illinois facility. The chicken ended up at grocery stores, hotels and restaurants.

Officials say it could take days to confirm how much of the products went out.

A spokesman confirms an investigation is underway at their Decatur facility on Plugs Drive to determine how this happened. He expects it to wrap up later this week and will release more information at that point.
