Tyson Foods is recalling 39,078 pounds of frozen chicken patties over fears they may be contaminated with “extraneous materials,” the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.
The recall affects the Weaver fully cooked items produced in January. The products were sold in 26-ounce resealable bags, and have a “best if used by” date of January 2020.

The agency said it was notified of potential contamination after consumers complained.
Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider. Anyone who’s bought the products is urged to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
Anyone with questions should contact Tyson Foods Consumer Relations at (888) 747-7611.
Tyson Chicken Fritters Recalled
In early June, the FSIS said that the company recalled 190,757 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken fritter products that may be contaminated with hard plastic.
“FSIS was notified of the problem on June 5, 2019, when Tyson Foods, Inc. advised FSIS of three consumer complaints from schools of foreign material in the breaded chicken fritter product. Tyson Foods, Inc. distributed the product to institutions, including schools.
While the product was distributed to schools, it resulted from a commercial sale and was not part of food provided by the USDA for the National School Lunch Program,” the service stated.
