Ready To Eat Chicken Recalled

This is a huge recall of a food nearly all of us eat, so please take note. National Steak and Poultry is recalling about 2 million pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products because it may be undercooked — which means it could be harboring harmful bacterial pathogens. No illnesses linked to the recall have been reported so far.
This is actually an expansion of a much smaller recall from Nov. 23 in case this sounds familiar. Unfortunately, what started off as 17,000 pounds has ballooned into almost 2 million pounds of potentially affected product. Yowza.

The USDA's list of recalled products is three pages long, so far, and includes everything from fajita strips to cubed meat. So please have a careful look. This is a class-I recall, which means "a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death."
If you have any of the recalled products, don't eat it, and dispose of it immediately.
