Over 52,000 pounds of chicken product recalled due to possible adulteration
A cooked chicken product was flagged for having an "off odor," the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.
As a result, Tyson Foods Inc. is recalling 52,000 pounds of chicken wings. Consumers contacted Tyson about the odor and, in some cases, mild illness after consuming the chicken. Tyson then contacted FSIS.
The affected product is 28-ounce retail bags containing multiple pieces of "Tyson Any-tizers Fully Cooked Hot Wings, CHICKEN WING SECTIONS COATED WITH A FLAVORFUL HOT, TANGY SAUCE" with use by/sell by dates of Oct. 24, 2016, packaging dates 2975PBF0508-23/2985PBF0500-01 and case codes 2975PBF0508-23/2985PBF0500-01. Look for establishment number P-13456 inside the USDA mark of inspection and on the back of the package near the cooking instructions.
The chicken wings were shipped to stores nationwide.
Any adverse affects linked to consuming the chicken product have not been confirmed. However, consumers are warned to not consume the wings. Instead, throw away the product, or return it to the store where you purchased it. If you have any questions, you can contact Tyson Foods' Consumer Relations (toll free) at 866-328-3156.
