Tyson Recalls Breaded Chicken Products


By Eric Weisfeld

WASHINGTON, April 2, 2013 – Tyson Foods Inc., a Russellville, Ark. establishment, is recalling approximately 127,000 lbs. of uncooked breaded chicken tenderloins and uncooked chicken tenderloin fritter products because of an undeclared allergen and misbranding. The product contains soy, a known allergen not declared on the label.
The following products are subject to recall:

• 20-lb. packages of “SPARE TIME Uncooked Chicken Tenderloin Fritters” bearing the establishment number “P-5839” inside the USDA mark of inspection and a case code of “7083861.”
• 10-lb. packages of “Tyson UNCOOKED, BREADED CHICKEN TENDERLOINS” bearing the establishment number “P-5839” inside the USDA mark of inspection and a case code of “7083928.”
The products were produced between March 1, 2013 and March 27, 2013 and shipped to food service companies nationwide for further distribution to restaurants and institutions. The cartons bear a package code of “0603TYLxxxx”, “0663TYLxxxx”, “0733TYLxxxx”, “0773TYLxxxx”, “0813TYLxxxx”, or “0863TYLxxxx” under the product code. The xxxx represents a time stamp.
The problem was discovered by the company and occurred as a result of a label change after reformulation of the product. A marinade ingredient that included an incorrect sub-ingredient (concentrated soy protein) was not declared on the label. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a health care provider.
