Tyson Foods recalls over 3,000 pounds of frozen breaded chicken products

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.

The chicken was produced on May 17.

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 tenderloins also have establishment number "P-746". If you think you were injured or sickened by the recalled chicken, the FDA recommended seeking medical treatment.

Ther have not been any confirmed reports of adverse reactions from anyone eating the contaminated chicken. Any institution that has purchased the products are asked to throw them away.

The FSIS says some of the chicken could be stored at food service institutions, as opposed to homes, and urged the locations not to serve the chicken.

"FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers", the department said.
