When recalls can impact the health and safety of our families, we will share about it! This recall is for breaded chicken products that were not sold directly to the public. But were sold to food service establishments around the country. Tyson Recalls Breaded Chicken Due to Possible Foreign Matter Contamination.
Tyson Foods Inc. is recalling 3,120 pounds of frozen, breaded chicken products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically blue and clear soft plastic.
The frozen, uncooked and breaded chicken tenderloins were produced on May 17, 2018. The following products are being recalled:
- 12-lb. box containing 3-lb. plastic bags of “UNCOOKED, BREADED, ORIGINAL CHICKEN TENDERLOINS,” with a lot code of 1378NLR02.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-746” on the product package.
These items were shipped to food services establishments, nationwide. The affected products are not available for purchase in retail stores. So if you are not eating chicken out, you should be able to avoid the dangers associated with this recall.
The problem was discovered on June 8, 2018, when Tyson Foods Inc. notified the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service that their breading supplier was recalling the breading ingredients due to possible foreign material contamination.
Thank goodness, 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 officials are concerned that some product may be frozen and in freezers at food service institutions and could be served. Food service institutions who have purchased these products are urged not to serve them. These products should be thrown away.
