Tyson Foods recalls chicken product

Tyson Foods Inc., a Pine Bluff, Ark., establishment, is recalling approximately 52,486 pounds of chicken-wing products that may be adulterated because of having an “off odor” scent, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.

The fully cooked buffalo-style, chicken-wing item was produced on Oct. 24 and Oct. 25. The following product is subject to recall:

• “Tyson Any’tizers Fully Cooked Hot Wings chicken wing sections coated with a flavorful hot, tangy sauce.” The 28-ounce retail bags have use-by and sell-by dates of Oct. 24, 2016, and Oct. 25, 2016 packaging dates and case codes 2975PBF0508-23/2985PBF0500-01.

The product subject to recall bears establishment number “P-13456” inside the U.S. Department of Agriculture mark of inspection as well as on the back of the bag above the heating instructions. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

The problem was discovered when Tyson Foods received consumer complaints about the product being “off-odor” as well as mild illness associated with consumption. After these consumer complaints, Tysons Foods brought this to the attention of the Food Safety and Inspection Service.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products by FSIS. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a health care provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
