When parents buy food for their children, they do so with a certain expectation that what they’re buying is safe. Unfortunately, a popular baby food manufacturer, Overhill Farms, has run into a problem that is making some parents nervous. Why? Well, the company is “recalling more than 50,000 pounds of frozen chicken bites because the products might be contaminated with bone fragments.”
In a statement from Overhill Farms, the company said:
“While the risk is low, the health and wellness of our children and customers is paramount, so we have proactively withdrawn the affected chicken bites from store shelves, and have voluntarily issued a recall in collaboration with USDA.”
So how can parents check to see if they have one of the recalled products? The company compiled a list, and so far the following products are included in the recall:
- 3-ounce boxes of Yummy Spoonfuls Chicken Carrot Bites. Best before Feb. 1, 2018; Feb. 9, 2018; and April 26, 2018.
- 3-ounce boxes of Yummy Spoonfuls Chicken Sweet Potato Bites. Best before Feb. 1, 2018, and Feb. 9, 2018.
- 3-ounce boxes of Yummy Spoonfuls Chicken Broccoli Bites. Best before Aug. 30, 2017; Feb. 20, 2018; and April 10, 2018.
- 30-pound bulk cases of Overhill Farms brand: Fully Cooked Organic Chicken Broccoli Bites Chicken and Vegetable Patty. Case Code 320422 and packaging date of Aug. 30, 2016.
- 30-pound bulk cases ofOverhill Farms brand: Fully Cooked Organic Chicken Carrot Bites Chicken Patties With Carrots And Cauliflower. Case Code 320460 and packaging date of Feb. 9, 2017.

It’s important to note that the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service claim that “no adverse reactions to the product have been reported.” For now, parents are being asked to throw away the recalled product.
