Tyson has recalled nearly 2.5M pounds of chicken products


Tyson Foods Inc. has recalled nearly 2.5 million pounds of ready-to-eat breaded chicken products because of undeclared allergens and misbranding. 

The Arkansas-based company said it discovered the issue on June 6, when a supplier notified Tyson Foods that the bread crumbs used in certain products could contain undeclared milk. 

The breaded chicken products were produced and packaged from Aug. 17, 2016, through Jan. 14, 2017, according to a release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture

This recall is limited to food-service customers in 30 states and the products were not available for purchase in retail stores, according to Tyson Foods. 

Tyson's records show that schools have purchased the recalled products through the company's commercial channels. 

So far, there have been no confirmed reports of illness in relation to these products.
