Tyson Foods and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service have announced a recall of more than 190,000 pounds of the company’s Fully Cooked, Whole Grain Golden Crispy Chicken Chunk Fritters.
The fritters, which have case code 0599NHL02 and have establishment number P-1325, could have foreign material, specifically plastic, in the product.
The chicken fritters were sent to institutions, including some schools, but were not part of food provided by the USDA to schools for the National School Lunch Program.
The FSIS was told of three consumer complaints last week, but there were no reports of adverse reactions.
While the items were not sold to the general public, the items could still be in institutional freezers. The packages of fritters should be returned to the place of purchase or thrown away, according to the FSIS.
