A popular grocery chain has issued a recall for its deli popcorn chicken over concerns that it may be contaminated with “foreign material.” Publix Super Markets has issued the recall for products sold in Florida, parts of Georgia, southern and coastal areas of South Carolina and southern Alabama.
According to an alert posted to Publix’ website, the voluntary recall involves popcorn chicken sourced from Pilgrim’s Pride, which is “doing business as Pierce Chicken.” The products were sold between Jan. 17-31, and was found in both the hot and refrigerated cases.

Those with additional questions were directed to contact the customer care department or visit the Publix website.
