A popular brand of chicken sold at Woolworths has been urgently recalled.

A type of Ingham’s Chicken Kievs - sold at the Woolworth deli counter in five states - has been pulled off shelves due to a possible choking hazard. 




Authorities say that ‘blue rubber’ could be in the popular chicken item, sparking the recall. 

Says Food Authority Australia: ‘Ingham’s wishes to advise customers it is conducting a recall on its sweet chilli kievs.

‘The recall only applies to product purchased from the deli counter in Woolworths stores in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia and in Metro stores in Victoria only on the 19, 20 and 21 May 2019.

‘Product purchased outside of these dates is NOT subject to recall. Product purchased from the chiller case or freezer is NOT subject to recall.’

They add: ‘The recall is due to potential foreign material contamination (blue rubber). The presence of foreign material presents a potential choking hazard.’

Food Safety Australia add that anyone with a potentially contaminated product should return the product to their place of purchase. 

Anyone wanting further information should contact Ingham’s on 1800 785 940.
