Tyson recalls over 3000 pounds of frozen chicken due to plastic contamination

Tyson recalls over 3000 pounds of frozen chicken due to plastic contamination

The specific products being recalled are labeled "Uncooked, Breaded, Original Chicken Tenderloins", and would have been sold in 12-pound boxes containing several 3-pound plastic bags of chicken.

Tyson said a breading supplier first flagged the problem on June 8, warning that its product was possibly contaminated with blue and clear pieces of soft plastic. The products have establishment number P-746 on the package. The affected products are not available for purchase in retail stores.

Tyson Foods is recalling 3,120 pounds of frozen, uncooked, breaded chicken tenderloins due to a threat of contamination by plastic. It urged these institutions to throw away the chicken.

Former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Danny Kirwan dies
Kirwan made his recording debut on the band's #1 United Kingdom instrumental hit, " Albatross ", released in November 1968. He did not attend the ceremony when he and his fellow bandmates were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

No adverse reactions have been confirmed. They are now concerned that some impacted products may be in freezers at food service institutions and could be served.

The recall on Friday is much smaller than one issued by Tyson Foods nearly exactly one year ago. Members of the media may contact Worth Sparkman, senior manager for external communications for Tyson Foods Inc., at (479) 290-6358.
