Innovative Solutions, an American company that makes meat products for local and national merchants, has recalled some raw-ground chicken steaks due to concerns that they may contain bone fragments. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall last week.

Affected products include Trader Joe’s Chile Lime Chicken Burgers, which come in a 1-pound box of four patties, produced between August 16 and September 29. The lot codes for the affected products can be found on the USDA website.

Trader Joe’s announced the recall on the company’s website last week, including a picture of the chicken burger box. If your box of chicken burgers has an affected batch number, Trader Joe’s says you should throw the product out or return it to a Trader Joe’s location to get a full refund.

Innovative recalled the product after receiving some customer complaints that there were bones in the chicken burgers. There have been no reports of side effects from ingesting the recalled products.

Some of Innovative’s “spinach feta chicken sliders” are also being recalled “by an abundance of caution,” Innovative President Frank Sorba told CNET. These chicken sliders were sold behind the deli counter in some Kroger stores and are not available to customers in the freezer.

Kroger did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
