RECALL ALERT! 18 Tons of Chicken Patties Recalled From Puerto Rico Schools For ‘Pieces of Metal’

SAN JUAN — About 35,870 pounds, or 17.9 tons, of breaded chicken patties that went to schools in Puerto Rico have been recalled because they might have pieces of metal.

The not-food-in-your-food recall was announced Thursday after a school complained Monday to manufacturer Productos La Aguadillana about metal in the chicken.

The USDA’s recall notice took care to note the chicken patties came to the schools “from a commercial sale and was not part of food provided by USDA for the National School Lunch Program.”

Anyone with questions can call Productos La Aguadillana President Luis Alvarez at 787-891-5720.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 50 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.
