Tyson Food Recalls More Than 50,000 Pounds of Chicken Wings
They’re giving off an odd odor.
Tyson Foods, the purveyors of frozen appetizers and snacks like popcorn chicken and chicken fries, has just recalled 52,486 pounds of chicken wings that may be adulterated. The brand is unclear on what exactly the contamination could be, however the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) explains that the product has an “off-odor” scent.
Consumers reported complaints with the Arizona-based company that the buffalo-style chicken wings had caused mild illness after consumption. This prompted Tyson to voluntarily recall the frozen wings becaues they “do not meet Tyson Foods quality standards.”
The recall applies to 28-ounce bags of Tyson Any’tizers Fully Cooked Hot Wings that were produced on Oct. 24 and Oct. 25, 2015, at the Tyson facility in Pine Bluff, AR. To find out if you have an affected product, here’s what you need to look for:
* Use by/sell by dates: Oct. 24, 2016, and Oct. 25, 2016
* Packaging dates: 2975PBF0508-23/2985PBF0500-01
* Case codes: 2975PBF0508-23/2985PBF0500-01
* Establishment number: P-13456
If you’ve purchased a potentially contaminated product, do not eat it. The company urges consumers to throw the frozen wings away or returned them to your grocery store for a refund. If you have any questions about the recall, you can contact Tyson Foods
