Birds Eye recalls cartons of frozen squash

Nov. 20, 2006
Birds Eye Foods is voluntarily recalling frozen cooked winter squash packed in a 12-ounce carton because some of the products were tainted with ammonia.

Birds Eye Foods is voluntarily recalling frozen cooked winter squash packed in a 12-ounce carton, under certain store brands and the Birds Eye brand, because some of the products were tainted with ammonia.

Cartons have an eight-digit code beginning with one of these characters: "5CF," "5JE," or "6JE." No other Birds Eye Foods products are involved.

The Birds Eye brand frozen cooked winter squash codes in question, as well as store brand labels, are distributed nationally. In total, these brand and store brand products represent about three million packages sold.

The squash was produced by a third party, Chase Farms, based in Walkerville MI, which has ceased production and distribution for Birds Eye while it investigates the problem.

Consumers with questions may phone 800-807-8817.
