National Steak and Poultry based in Oklahoma is recalling almost 2 million pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products because it may be undercooked. This is an expansion of a November 23, 2016 recall for 17,439 pounds of product.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said that the undercooked chicken may result in the survival of bacterial pathogens in the products.

The cases containing the products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-6010T” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to food service locations nationwide and were sold directly to retail consumers.
