Simmons said the company discovered the issue through standard food-safety and quality checks and that "no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the products" had been received.

The affected products - produced from October 21, 2019, through November 4, 2019 - include many ready-to-cook chicken products, such as boneless skin chicken, whole chicken and chicken wings.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, Simmons Prepared Foods, Inc., is recalling ready-to-cook chicken products including wings, legs, breasts and whole chickens that "may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal".

The establishment numbers "P-1949", "P-486" or "P-5837" will appear inside the USDA mark of inspection on the products.

Arkansas-based poultry products distributor Simmons Food has recalled over 2 million pounds of contaminated poultry, including products that were shipped to stores in Arkansas and Oklahoma.
