Tyson Foods has issued a recall of nearly 2.5 million pounds of its breaded, ready-to-eat chicken due to potential allergen contamination. The bread crumbs used in the product could contain milk that is not listed on the package.
While the products were not sold in stores, they have been distributed nationwide to restaurants, and cafeterias, including those in schools. Altogether, it affects more than 82,000 cases of chicken strips, fritters, patties, and nuggets with production dates from August 2016 to January 2017.
An ingredient supplier notified the company of the error in June and began notifying its food-service customers.
So far, no illnesses have been reported in connection to the recall.
