Tyson recalling 52K pounds of cooked chicken wings

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Check your refrigerators and freezers.

Tyson Foods is recalling 52,486 pounds of chicken wings because they could have an “off-odor” scent.

That description comes from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The problem was first discovered when consumers noticed an odd smell from the bags and there are some reports of mild illness after eating the chicken wings.

Tyson says the product is being recalled because it “does not meet Tyson Foods quality standards.”

The fully cooked buffalo-style chicken wing section item was produced on Oct. 24 and Oct. 25 at the Tyson facility in Pine Bluff, AR. The following product is subject to recall:

28-oz. retail bags containing multiple pieces of “Tyson® Any’tizers® Fully Cooked Hot Wings® CHICKEN WING SECTIONS COATED WITH A FLAVORFUL HOT, TANGY SAUCE” with use by/sell by dates of Oct. 24, 2016, and Oct. 25, 2016, packaging dates 2975PBF0508-23/2985PBF0500-01 and case codes 2975PBF0508-23/2985PBF0500-01.

The recalled wings have the establishment number “P-13456” inside the USDA mark of inspection as well as on the back of the bag above the heating instructions. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

Tyson urges people to not eat the wings. Tyson recommends either throwing the wings away or returning them to the store where they were purchased.
