A popular Ingham’s Chicken product has been recalled from shelves across the country over fears they may be contaminated with a foreign object.
NSW Food Authority issued an urgent message to Australians on Thursday urging all customers who had purchased the company’s Sweet Chilli Chicken Kiev from Woolworths recently to check their products and the date of purchase.
Anyone who bought the chicken kievs from the deli counter of Woolies stores in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia and metro stores in Victoria on May 19, 20 and 21 have been advised to return them to stores immediately.
The product has been recalled due to potential foreign material contamination of blue rubber which presents a potential choking hazard.

The chicken in question is the Sweet Chilli Chicken Kiev, 150g per kiev, which would have been wrapped in paper and had a ticket applied in store over the deli counter at Woolworths. The recall does not affect products from the chiller case or freezer.
Anyone who purchased this product is urged to take it back to the place of purchase in exchange for a full cash refund.
