Welcome to the latest round of item updates. The manufacturing industry (PPP, food, etc) has been hit hard by COVID-19 in so many ways, it's no surprise there will be changes and expected shortages to some of the items you've ordered for Fall 2020 deliveries. In situations where the price increases are minimal, I'm accepting the changes on your behalf so you don't have gaps in your meal planning.
ITEM 132 CHICKEN PATTIE-Fully cooked, grilled, unbreaded, boneless/skinless, 1 pc = 2 M/MA, IQF (9.75 lb), 52 / 3 oz
AdvancePierre (owned by Tyson) has discontinued this product. The replacement is by Brakebush, mfg # 5990, and this alternative meets the specs required by this bid item. The new case pack size is 61 / 2.62 oz @ $28.11 / case.
New Item 132 spec sheet
