Tyson Frozen Chicken Recalled Due To Possible Plastic Contamination

Tyson recalls 3000 pounds of chicken due to possible plastic contamination

According to ABC News, The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Friday the chicken may be contaminated by pieces of "blue and clear soft plastic".

FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in freezers at food service institutions and could be served. The FSIS also said that the products already purchased must be thrown away.

The USDA says the problem was discovered Friday when Tyson reported that its breading supplier was recalling the breading because of the possible contamination. That was because the ready-to-eat breaded chicken products contained milk, an allergen that wasn't declared on the product label.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Tyson Foods said Monday, March 6, 2017, a strain of bird flu sickened chickens at a poultry breeder that supplies it.

The 'trend' that is troubling the US
Genevieve Weber, Hofstra University associate professor of counseling and mental health , agreed that a direct approach is best. When a high-profile person dies by suicide, the "celebrity-suicide effect" can lead to a rise in copycat deaths .

The products being recalled were not available for purchase in retail stores.

The recall on Friday is much smaller than one issued by Tyson Foods nearly exactly one year ago.

This is not the first time such a recall took place for Tyson Foods.
