From Nacogdoches ISD

NACOGDOCHES, TX - Tuesday, April 26 Pilgrim's Pride issued a large recall for multiple products produced in the Waco, TX facility. The Associated Press states the items were shipped nationwide for institutional use and records show schools purchased the products through Pilgrim's Pride commercial channels.

Pilgrim's has notified Nacogdoches ISD stating that their team is diligently working with the supplier to gather all necessary information. They also suggested that Nacogdoches ISD place all Pilgrim's products on hold.

"To assure the health of our students, any product Nacogdoches ISD currently has from Pilgrim's has been put on hold until we can verify and insure that what we have is safe" said Robin Thacker, Director of Student Nutrition. "Currently most of the chicken products the district purchases are Tyson products."
