Tyson Foods ordered a massive chicken recall Wednesday after USDA officials said misbranded chicken could carry undeclared allergens.
About 67,000 pounds of buffalo wings were packaged in honey barbeque wing bags and contain potential allergens in milk, soy and egg, which were not declared on the honey barbeque packaging, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.
Tyson has not received any complaints of adverse reactions from the mix-up of products, which were produced Aug. 7 and 8 on distributed nationwide, USDA officials said.
Tyson was notified of the discrepancies from consumer complains, according to a USDA statement.
The products subject to recall include:
- 25.5 oz. (1.59 lb.) bags of “Tyson any’tizers Boneless Chicken Wyngz Honey BBQ Flavored.” Each bag bears the USDA mark of inspection. The establishment number “P13456” and the use by date “Aug 072013” or “Aug 082013” are inkjetted on the back of the bags.
- 12.75 lb. shipping cases of “Fully Cooked Boneless Chicken Wyngz Buffalo Style.” Each case bears the USDA mark of inspection. The establishment number “P13456” and the use by date “Aug 07 2013” or “Aug 08 2013” are inkjetted on the cases. Identifying case codes “2202PBF0208:xx” through “2202PBF0223:xx” or “2212PBF0200:xx” through “2212PBF0223:xx,” where the last four digits represent hours and minutes (“xx”) in military time, also can be found inkjetted on cases subject to recall.
