Tyson Foods Recalls 190,000 Pounds of Chicken Products
Tyson Foods has recalled more than 190,000 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken fritter products because some may contain hard plastic, according to the US Department of Agriculture.
The department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a statement that it was concerned that some of the affected products may be in food service freezers.
“Food service locations who have purchased these products are urged not to serve them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase,” it said.
The product, which was produced Feb. 28, is available only commercially – not through retail stores. No other products have been affected, the company said.
The recalled fully cooked, whole grain golden crispy chicken was labeled as 32.81-pound cases containing four 8.2-pound bags of “FULLY COOKED, WHOLE GRAIN GOLDEN CRISPY CHICKEN CHUNK FRITTERS-CN.”
They have the establishment number “P-1325” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
“There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider,” FSIS said.
