A 12-pound box containing three-pound plastic bags of the company's frozen, uncooked and breaded chicken tenderloins are said to be contaminated with blue and clear soft plastic.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

Tyson Foods has recalled over 3,000 pounds of frozen chicken after it was discovered there were pieces of plastic in the chicken's breading ingredients. The recalled products are marked with the number "P-746" on the product package.

Food service institutions who have purchased the recalled product are advised to not serve the chicken.

Anyone concerned about an injury or illness from eating these products should contact a healthcare provider. These products should be thrown away.

Tyson Foods Inc. has announced the recall of more than 3,000 pounds of frozen chicken that may be contaminated with plastic.

This is not the first time such a recall took place for Tyson Foods. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day.
