Pine Bluff, AR-based Tyson Foods Inc. recalled almost 40,000 pounds of Weaver brand frozen chicken patties that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The production mistake was discovered after the recalling firm notified FSIS of consumer complaints. Tyson distributed the patties to stores nationwide.
“FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase,” according to the recall notice.
The frozen, fully cooked chicken items were produced on January 31, 2019. The following products are subject to recall:
