Oklahoma-based National Steak and Poultry recalled 1,976,089 pounds of ready-to-eat-chicken that may be undercooked.

It came on the heels of the company’s initial recall of 17,349 pounds of chicken.

The recall includes a variety of ready-to-eat chicken products that were produced on various dates from August 20 through November 30 of this year.

Undercooking may lead to survival of bacterial pathogens in the products according to the December 1 announcement of the Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The initial recall came after a food service customer made a complaint on November 28 that the product appeared undercooked.

So far, there is no confirmed report of adverse health effects or illnesses related to the recalled product.

Consumers who purchased the recalled product should throw it away or return to the place of purchase.
