Food authority issues urgent recall on popular Woolworths item
A popular chicken item has been recalled after it was found to contain potential choking risks.
Those who have purchased Ingham’s Sweet Chilli Chicken Kiev from Woolworths have been advised to not consume the food item.
The warning comes from the NSW Food Authority as they claim the chicken may carry a potential contamination risk, as a foreign substance, identified as blue rubber, was discovered in the meat.
“The presence of foreign materials presents a potential choking hazard,” it warned.
The recall is only applicable on products purchased from the deli counter in Woolworths stores in NSW, QLD, VIC, WA and metropolitan stores in VIC, from Sunday May 19 to Tuesday May 21.
