Tyson Foods is recalling approximately 3,120 pounds of frozen breaded chicken products that may be contaminated with blue and clear soft plastic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) recently announced. The frozen, uncooked and breaded chicken tenderloins were produced in May and packaged in 12-pound boxes containing four three-pound plastic bags.

These chicken products were shipped to food services establishments around the country and were not made available to grocery stores.The recall stemmed from the supplier of the breading ingredients being made aware of "possible foreign material contamination." There have been no confirmed injuries or illnesses associated with eating the chicken.
