RIDGELAND, Wis. (AP) — A northwestern Wisconsin poultry processor is recalling more than 2,000 pounds of chicken over concerns it may have been contaminated with an industrial disinfectant.

The Wisconsin State Journal (http://bit.ly/1IEF1JI ) reports the disinfectant is not approved for use in poultry processing.

The recall covers roughly 2,191 pounds of whole and cut chicken and 21 pounds of turkey pieces produced by Ridgeland-based AA Poultry Processing LLC between May 4 and May 11. The company's recall was announced Thursday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Products in the recall have the establishment number "P-45525" inside the USDA inspection mark on the label. The USDA says the agency and the company haven't received any reports of allergic reactions from the meat.
