190,000 pounds of Tyson chicken fritter products recalled for foreign material

The company has launched a nationwide recall of more than 190,000 pounds of chicken "fritters".

Tyson Foods announced it was pulling 190,757 pounds of ready-to-eat Golden Crispy Chicken Chunk Fritters after three schools found plastic in the product last week.

Tyson reported the 190,000 pounds of chicken products were produced on February 28.

FSIS categorized the recall as "Class I", meaning the food item was a health hazard and there was "reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death".

The recalled product carries establishment number "P-1325" stamped inside the USDA mark of inspection, the company said.

The recalled items were shipped to institutional foodservice locations nationwide and were not packaged for retail sale.

The specified chicken included in the recall was not a part of food provided by the USDA for the National School Lunch Program.

These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

The product was produced at one plant location and sent to distribution centers in 29 states: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin.
