ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - Federal regulators say St. Cloud-based Gold’n Plump is recalling more than 27 tons of chicken after contaminants were detected.

Gold’n Plump notified the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service that sand and black soil was discovered in the chicken. The source of the contaminants remains under investigation.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1PAKi5X ) reports Saturday’s recall announcement said no illnesses have been reported.

The chicken was produced from June 6-9 and packaged in 40-pound cases for food service and retail distribution.

A wide variety of chicken parts is covered by the recall. The products bear “P-322” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The agency says people who bought the chicken are urged not to eat it. The products should be discarded or returned to where they were purchased for a refund.
