PF Chang’s, the popular restaurant chain with a line of frozen food meals distributed in grocery stores across the US, recently expanded its recall of certain frozen food products. The product recall was initially limited to fewer than 4,000 pounds of PF Chang’s frozen food meals, but the company’s distributor had to expand the recall to more than 195,000 pounds of PF Chang’s products after learning that a sauce ingredient may contain small pieces of metal.
The specific line of products that were recalled is the PF Chang’s Home Menu brand, which includes Beef with Broccoli, Garlic Chicken with Dan Dan Noodles, General Chang’s Chicken, Grilled Chicken Teriyaki with Lo Mein Noodles, Mongolian Style Beef, Shrimp Lo Mein, Signature Spicy Chicken, and Sweet & Sour Chicken. The affected frozen food products were produced in 22-ounce packages between May 31 and June 22.
The recall was first issued on July 7 after a worker at the ConAgra production facility noticed small metal fragments in one of the ingredients for a PF Chang’s product sauce. The product in question is said to be sugar, which the ConAgra employee was dispensing at the time.
The expanded recall has now been deemed necessary after ConAgra learned that more lots of sugar being produced in the facility may contain metal shards.
Consumers are being asked to check their freezers to make sure that they do not accidentally consume the affected products. Anyone who bought the recalled PF Chang’s products is asked to either discard the meals or return them to the grocery store for a full refund of the purchase price.
