Tyson Recalls Chicken Fritters Sent to Schools For Foreign Material Contamination

Tyson Foods of New Holland, Pennsylvania is recalling about 190,757 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken fritters products that may be contaminated with foreign materials, more specifically hard plastic. This product was not part of food provided by the USDA for the National School Lunch Program; it was distributed to schools and other institutions. Three consumer complaints from schools were received. There have been no reports of injuries linked to the consumption of this product.

The recalled product is 32.81-pound cases containing four 8.2 pound bags of “Fully Cooked, Whole Gain Golden Crispy Chicken Chunk Fritters-CN.” The product has a case code of 0599NHL02. The chicken fritters have the establishment number “P-1325″inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to institutional foodservice locations nationwide. The fritters were not packaged for retail sale.

FSIS was notified about the problem on June 5, 2019 when Tyson told the government about consumer complaints. FSIS is concerned that the product may be in food service freezers; officials should check their institution’s freezers. If your school or company purchased this product, do not serve it. Throw it away in a sealed container in a secure garbage can, or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

FSIS will conduct retail effectiveness checks to make sure that the recalling firm is telling its customers about this recall. The retail distribution lists will be posted on the FSIS website when available. This recall is not related to the May 4, 2019 recall of Tyson Chicken Strips that were also recalled for foreign material contamination.
