Posted at 5:15 PM, Jun 09, 2018

Tyson Foods has recalled more than 3,000 pounds of frozen chicken after it discovered tiny pieces of plastic in the breading ingredients. 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety Inspection Service announced the recall Friday after the USDA informed them that the chicken may be contaminated by pieces of "blue and clear soft plastic."

The recalled chicken was sold in 3-pound plastic bags and labeled "UNCOOKED, BREADED, ORIGINAL CHICKEN TENDERLOINS," with a lot code of 1378NLR02.

So far no injuries or illnesses linked to the recall have been reported. 

FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in freezers at food service institutions and could be served. Food Service Institutions who have purchased these products are urged not to serve them. These products should be thrown away.
