A report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced more than 52,000 odd-smelling chicken wings are now under recall by Tyson Foods Inc. CBS News reports the food giant discovered the problem through its own consumers, who claimed the fully cooked buffalo style chicken had an “off odor,” and also reported experiencing “mild illness associated with consumption.”
“Consumers who contacted the company indicated the product had an off odor,” Tyson Foods said in a recent statement about the recall announcement. “The product does not meet Tyson Foods quality standards.”
The Tyson recall specifically targets its “Tyson Anytizers Fully Cooked Hot Wings” that are “coated with a flavorful hot, tangy sauce” and produced at its Pine Bluff, Ark., plant between Oct. 24 and Oct. 25, 2015. The recalled chicken packages have packaging dates of 2975PBF0508-23/2985PBF0500-01 and case codes of 2975PBF0508 23/2985PBF0500-01.
To find the recalled chicken’s establishment number of “P-13456,” check inside the USDA mark of inspection, as well as on the back of the bag over the instructions. The “Best if Used By” date for the recalled chicken is Oct. 24, 2016 or Oct. 25, 2016.
While there have been “no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products by FSIS,” Tyson Foods and the agency ask consumes to either return the chicken to the store of purchase, or simply throw it away.
