Tyson Foods recalls more than 190,000 pounds of chicken fritters shipped nationwide

The company has launched a nationwide recall of more than 190,000 pounds of chicken "fritters".

Tyson Foods is recalling almost 191,000 pounds of chicken fritters sold across the US after getting complaints from schools about pieces of hard plastic in the ready-to-eat products. No other products have been affected, the company said.

Officials said they were notified last Wednesday of reports of three people finding "foreign material" in the breaded chicken fritters that were handed out at schools.

Tyson Foods is recalling nearly 191,000 pounds of chicken fritters after schools complained about finding pieces of hard plastic in the ready-to-eat products.

The specified chicken included in the recall was not a part of food provided by the USDA for the National School Lunch Program.

FSIS is concerned that some products may be in food service freezers, and are urging locations who purchased these products to not serve them.

No adverse reactions stemming from the consumption of these products have been confirmed.

Consumers with questions and call toll-free line at 1-888-747-7611 Monday through Friday 8 a.m.to 5 p.m.

The product is not sold in retail grocery stores, and the voluntary recall is limited to food service customers, including schools nationwide, the Pennsylvania-based company said. "These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase", according to the recall notice.
