Tyson Foods Inc. recalls breaded chicken products due to possible foreign matter contamination

Posted: Updated:

Tyson Foods Inc. is recalling approximately 3,120 pounds of frozen breaded chicken products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically blue and clear soft plastic.

The United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Monday the frozen, uncooked and breaded chicken tenderloins were produced on May 17, 2018.

The 12-lb. box containing 3-lb. plastic bags of “UNCOOKED, BREADED, ORIGINAL CHICKEN TENDERLOINS,” with a lot code of 1378NLR02 are subject to recall. The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-746” on the product package.

Affected items were shipped to food services establishments nationwide. Island News reached out to Tyson Foods and a representative says they can't say for sure if the affected product was sent to Hawaii because they were sent to distribution centers in other states. They do want to emphasize it's a fairly small amount of product that is affected and wants to reiterate affected products were not sold on store shelves but sent to food service establishments.

The problem was discovered on June 8 when Tyson Foods notified FSIS their breading supplier was recalling breading ingredients due to possible foreign material contamination. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. 

FSIS is concerned some products may be frozen, in freezers at food service institutions and could be served. Food service institutions who have purchased these products are urged not to serve them and should throw suspected products away.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact the Tyson Foods Inc. call center at (888) 747-7611.
