Tyson Foods Inc., in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, announced a voluntary recall of more than 50,000 pounds of frozen chicken due to an undeclared soy-based allergen not listed on the food packaging.

The recalled products were sold to food service outlets, which usually supply restaurants and were not labeled for retail sale.

The food services companies have been contacted and asked to recover previously sold products and hold any unsold products until Tyson can retrieve them.

Tyson has been in the process of lowering the amounts of allergens in the company’s food service products. Several chicken products containing the old recipe were shipped using the newly revised product labeling.

The recalled chicken products were produced at the company's Vicksburg, Mississippi location between July 23 and August 5, according to a news release by Tyson Foods.

10-lb cases of “Tyson Uncooked Chicken Breast Tenderloin Fritters.” Case Code: 2989-928 | Packing Date: 7/25/08.
