Tyson Foods, Inc., is recalling over 190,000 pounds of Tyson Fully Cooked, Whole Grain Golden Crispy Chicken Chunk Fritters. According to the firm, the items could come with hard plastic, which could expose consumers to risks.
The company says that while the items did not make it to people’s homes, schools serve the chicken items. This is extremely concerning, as children could be at risk.
According to news reports from CNN and other outlets, the company recalled the chicken fritters after it received three complaints from schools. The reports showed that the products had foreign material in them. Thankfully, nobody suffered any health issues as a result.
While the National School Lunch Program does not carry the items, individual schools purchased the recalled products nationwide.
Items listed under this recall campaign include all products carrying the “P-1325” number. It was stamped inside the USDA mark of inspection. The items also come in 32.81 pound cases with the code 0599NHL02. Each case comes with four 8.2-pound bags.
Schools or other organizations that have the recalled food items should throw them out or return them to the place of purchase.
