The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s
Consumer Protection Division announced a food recall Wednesday.

Cagle’s Inc., a Collinsville, Ala., establishment, is voluntarily
recalling approximately 943,000 pounds of various fresh and frozen
poultry giblets and fresh carcasses with giblets.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service the recalled product, including the giblets, may be unfit for consumption.

No illnesses have been associated with recalled product at this time.

The following products in Colorado are subject to recall:

·13-lb. bulk packages of “Our Premium Deli Pre-Breaded Chicken
Livers.” Each label bears a product code of 12210.

·13-lb. bulk packages of “Our Premium Deli Pre-Breaded Chicken
Gizzards.” Each label bears a product code of 21210.

Each shipping package bears the establishment number P-548 inside the
USDA mark of inspection; however, these products were repackaged for consumer sale and will therefore not include the establishment number.

The products were produced on various dates between Dec. 3, 2007, and March 12, 2008.

According to a Cable’s Inc. company spokesperson, the two recalled
products were exclusively distributed in Colorado to Safeway stores.

A Safeway spokesperson said that all recalled product has been pulled from its stores statewide. If consumers have this product with the indicated product codes and production dates, they should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

The problem was discovered through USDA inspection. In November 2007, the plant installed new sorting equipment, which may have resulted in improper sorting of edible and inedible chicken parts.

Safety Inspection Services virtual representative available 24 hours a
