Tyson Foods at New Holland, PA Saturday recalled approximately 1,148 pounds of frozen popcorn chicken products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically hard plastic, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The products included in the recall bear establishment number “P-1325” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a wholesale distributor in Illinois and further distributed to schools and food services in Missouri and Illinois.
The problem was discovered when Tyson’s received a consumer complaint from a school regarding foreign material, specifically hard plastic, found inside a bag of Tyson brand whole grain popcorn chicken product.
