Mexico's Bachoco pulls possibly contaminated meat from U.S.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s top poultry producer Bachoco has begun the recall of some 1 million pounds of breaded products from its U.S. unit OK Foods that it said were possibly contaminated with metal, the company said in a statement on Friday.

Bachoco said the recalled products were produced in its Oklahoma City factory and that it had not confirmed reports of averse reactions due to the consumption of products.

“They could be contaminated with strange materials, specifically metal,” the company said in a statement.

OK Foods operates in the U.S. states of Arkansas and Oklahoma.
