Tyson Foods has recalled 52,486 pounds of chicken wings featured in its Tyson Any'tizers products because of what the company termed an "off odor" scent noticed by some customers. That, and the fact that a few of them said they got sick. 

The recall includes chicken wings that were produced Oct. 24-25, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service statement. The 28-ounce retail bags of Tyson Any'tizers are stamped with the use by/sell by dates of Oct. 24-25, 2016.

"The problem was discovered when Tyson Foods Inc. received consumer complaints about the product being 'off-odor' as well mild illness associated with consumption," the federal inspection service said in its statement. "After these consumer complaints, Tysons Food Inc. brought this to the attention of FSIS."

"There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products by FSIS. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a health care provider," said the feds.

Tyson, based in Springdale, Arkansas, issued its own artful statement about the recall on its website.

"The product does not meet Tyson Foods quality standards, so the company is recalling all Tyson Any'tizers Fully Cooked Hot Wings Buffalo Style Chicken Wing Sections produced … at the company’s Pine Bluff, Ark., facility," said the company.

"Each 28-ounce bag affected in this recall bears the establishment code P-13456 above the heating instructions on the back of the bag and Product UPC 0 23700 01118 3 as well as date codes including '2975PBF05' or '2985PBF05.'"

Federal inspectors urged consumers who purchased the recalled products to throw them away or return them to where they purchased them.

Tyson Foods operates 45 chicken facilities. Some 30 percent of the company sales come from chicken products, second to its beef products, which make up 42 percent of the company's sales, according to the company. Pork products make up 14 percent of the company's sales.

About 44 percent of Tyson's products are sold to consumers while 33 percent are sold in the food service industry. Seventeen percent of Tyson's products are purchased internationally.
