Tyson Foods is recalling almost 191,000 pounds of chicken fritters sold across the USA after getting complaints from schools about pieces of hard plastic in the ready-to-eat products.

Last month, Tyson Foods, Inc. recalled approximately 11,829,517 million pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip products that may have been contaminated with pieces of metal.

The recalled product carries establishment number "P-1325" stamped inside the USDA mark of inspection, the company said.

The poultry giant stated the recall is out of caution and the reports were limited to information from 2 people.

The recalled items were shipped to institutional foodservice locations nationwide and were not packaged for retail sale.

The latest recall involves bags of fritters produced February 28, 2019, and shipped to institutional food service locations nationwide but not to retailers, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

FSIS said they were notified of the issue after Tyson Foods reported three complaints from schools over a foreign substance in the chicken. The fritters are not part of the National School Lunch Program but were purchased separately by individual schools, the USDA said.

Tyson Foods, Inc. distributed the product to institutions, including schools.

These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Tyson Foods consumer relations staff at 888-747-7611.
