Tyson Recalls Foodservice Chicken Tenderloins

04 April 2013

US – Tyson Foods is voluntarily recalling approximately 127,000 pounds of uncooked Breaded Chicken Tenderloins and uncooked Chicken Tenderloin Fritters.

The product was produced for restaurants or institutional food operations, and is currently in the distribution phase.

The affected product contains soy, a potential allergen, which was not properly identified on the label.

At this time there have been no reported illnesses or other concerns as a result of the mislabeling.

The voluntary recall is being initiated as a precaution. Tyson Foods is in the process of accounting for the affected product and placing it on hold.

Approximately 12,650 cases of uncooked Breaded Chicken Tenderloins and uncooked Chicken Tenderloin Fritters containing soy were produced between 1 March and 27 March at the Tyson Foods plant in Russellville, Arkansas.

Tyson Foods shipped the affected cases to food service companies nationwide. Tyson Foods' customers further distribute the products to individual restaurants and institutions. These products are not labeled or intended for retail sales.
