Conagra Brands, Inc. (Russellville, Arkansas) is recalling approximately 130,763 pounds of not ready-to-eat chicken bowl products because the product may contain extraneous material, specifically small rocks, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on April 10, 2020.
The frozen, not-ready-to-eat chicken bowl items were produced on Jan. 23, 2020. The following products are subject to recall:
- 9.5-oz. cartons containing “Healthy Choice POWER BOWLS Chicken Feta & Farro” with lot code 5006002320, UPC code 072655001800 and a best by date of 10/19/2020 on the label.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P115” printed on the packaging next to the lot code. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide and exported to Canada.
The problem was discovered when the firm received customer complaints about rocks being in the products and the firm then notified FSIS of the issue.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in customers’ freezers. Customers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away.
This is a Class 1 recall: “This is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.”
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms are notifying their customers of the recall and that actions are being taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to customers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
