10-pound boxes of May's teriyaki chicken are recalled

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:17 a.m. HST, Dec 21, 2013

Palama Holdings is recalling about 3,600 pounds of raw, frozen marinated May's Hawaii chicken products because they may have experienced temperature abuse in the distribution chain, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Friday.

Ten-pound cardboard boxes, containing four sealed packages of May's Hawaii "Hawaiian Style, Boneless and Skinless Teriyaki Chicken Thighs," are being recalled.

The products were produced Oct. 15, 2013 and Nov. 5, 2013 and distributed 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.

The problem was discovered during shipment when the company's distributor observed boxes of product swollen with gases from the bagged chicken, an indication that there may have been temperature abuse during storage prior to product distribution.

The Department of  Agriculture and the company have not received reports of people getting sick after eating the products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers with questions about the recall may contact Gary Hanagami, May's Hawaii vice president of retail sales at (808) 682-8300.

Ten pound boxes contaminated indicate commercial establishment use, like restaurants?? Unless, regular citizens buy in that quantity, strange.

Check the workers out! There is a common denominator and we have yet to have good news investigations on any level regarding food safety especially in restaurants. Like my good friend FD said, if you want food prepared right, cook it yourself. Auwe!
