Massive Frozen Dinner Recall Affects All 50 States

There may be small pieces of metal hiding in the sauce.

Beef, broccoli and... metal?

ConAgra Foods is recalling a wide array of P.F. Chang’s frozen dinners because there may be metal shards in the entrees’ sauce.

The recall was first announced earlier this month, but it expanded last week to include more than 195,000 pounds of frozen meals sold in grocery stores across the country.

Recalled meals include Signature Spicy Chicken, Mongolian Style Beef and Beef with Broccoli from P.F. Chang’s Home Menu. No injuries have been reported, though ConAgra is concerned the sauce may contain metal fragments that are “curled, malleable and shiny.”

What’s even more disturbing, however, is that an employee found these metal pieces “while dispensing sugar from a supplier for sauce formulation,” according to a ConAgra press release. Added sugar in our chicken dinner? No thanks.

The recalled P.F. Chang’s dinners have an establishment number “EST. 233” or “EST. P-115” inside the USDA mark of inspection. If you’ve bought them, ConAgra advises throwing them away or returning to the place of purchase.

Oh, and we advise making your own stir-fry instead.
