Tyson Foods is voluntarily recalling 70,500 pounds (32,000 kg) of canned Premium Chunk Chicken produced by a co-packer, company officials have announced.
Approximately 24 cans produced on May 18, 2012 were mislabelled and actually contained Beef with Gravy. The gravy contains wheat and is a potential allergen. Tyson Foods has accounted for 14 of the 24 cans, however as a precautionary measure, the company is recalling all 12.5-ounce cans of chunk chicken produced that day.
There have been no illnesses associated with this mislabeling. It should be noted the product is fully cooked and there is no danger to consumers as long as this or any beef or chicken product is properly handled.
The mislabeled product can be identified by the date code 8965 248A 12139 printed directly on the end of each can. The can also has a “best by” date of May 18, 2015.
