EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Tyson Foods Inc. is recalling over 3,000 pounds of frozen breaded chicken products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically blue and clear soft plastic, according to the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The frozen breaded chicken products being recalled were packaged on May 17, 2018.

  • 12-lb. box containing 3-lb. plastic bags of “UNCOOKED, BREADED, ORIGINAL CHICKEN TENDERLOINS,” with a lot code of 1378NLR02.

According to the USDA, the products have an establishment number “P-746” on the package.

These items were shipped to food service establishments nationwide, and the affected products are not available to purchase at retail stores.

The problem was discovered on June 8 when Tyson Foods Inc.’s breading supplier recalled the products due to possible foreign material contamination.

According to the USDA, there have not been any confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption.

The USDA says that food service institutions that purchased the chicken are asked to throw them away and to not serve them to customers.
