Tyson Foods, a leading producer of prepared food, beef, pork and chicken, issued a recall of approximately 2.5 million pounds of ready-to-eat breaded chicken due to a potential allergen.
A supplier contacting Tyson to alert them of a potential unlabeled allergen in its bread crumbs prompted the issuance of a recall. The supplier said the bread crumbs distributed to Tyson and other companies in the food industry may contain milk.
The meat was distributed to 30 different states and is limited to food-service customers. The ready-to-eat breaded chicken is not available for purchase in retail stores, Tyson said.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the company’s records reveal schools have bought products through Tyson’s commercial channels.
No complaints of illness associated with the recall have been reported or confirmed.
