3,600 lbs of May's Hawaii chicken recalled
A Kapolei company is recalling 3,600 lbs of raw, frozen chicken Friday after it is believed the chicken may have experienced improper temperature control.
According to the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service, Palama Holdings LLC believes that the improper storage of May's Hawaii "Hawaiian Style, Boneless and Skinless Teriyaki Chicken Thighs" happened somewhere in its distribution chain
The problem was discovered during shipment when the company's distributor observed boxes of product swollen with gases from the bagged chicken. That indicates that there may have been improper storage of the chicken prior to its distribution.
The products included in the recall are 10-lb. cardboard boxes, containing four individual cryovac sealed packages of May's Hawaii "Hawaiian Style, Boneless and Skinless Teriyaki Chicken Thighs."
The products were produced Oct. 15, 2013 and Nov. 5, 2013 then was distributed for retail sale on Oahu, Maui and Kauai and to a nearby military commissary. The packages bear the establishment number "EST. P-11077" in the USDA mark of inspection on the package.
Consumers with questions about the recall may contact Gary Hanagami, May's Hawaii vice president of retail sales, at (808) 682-8300.
