Tyson Foods recalls foodservice chicken
Tyson Foods, in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), has voluntarily recalled 51,360 pounds of uncooked, foodservice chicken due to an undeclared soy-based allergen in the end of last week.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with this product; however,
the company has initiated the recall as a precautionary measure.
The affected products were sold to foodservice
companies, which typically supply restaurants, and were not labeled for retail
sale. The foodservice companies have been notified and asked to recover and hold
the products further distributed to their customers until the products can be
retrieved by Tyson.
Tyson has been in the process of reducing the number
of allergens in the company's foodservice products and produced some products
with the old formulation while prematurely using a new label. The products were
produced at the company's Vicksburg, Mississippi, location between July 23,
2008, and August 5, 2008.
The foodservice items being
â€¢ 10-pound cases of "Standard Quality Uncooked
Fritters, Old Fashioned Chicken Breast Tenderloins."
â€¢ 10-pound cases of "Sysco Uncooked, Fritters, Chicken Breast
â€¢ 10-pound cases of "Heritage Valley Uncooked Steakhouse
