But some of those fully-cooked options may be hazardous to your health.
The San Diego-based company, Chicken Tarantino Wholesale Foods Distributor, is recalling more than 1,100 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken breasts.
Undercooked chicken can result in the potential survival of bacterial pathogens in the products, according to the recall notice posted by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The recalled product is labeled as “Mary’s Fully Cooked Chicken Breast.”
The 10-pound cases were produced on Oct. 23 and have a use-by-date of Oct. 23, 2021.

10-lb. cases of “MARY’S FULLY COOKED CHICKEN BREAST” with lot code 20297, use-by date of 10/23/21 and the establishment number “P-8119” stamped inside the USDA mark of inspection
