Tyson Foods is recalling nearly 2.5 million pounds of ready-to-eat breaded chicken due to an unlabeled allergen: milk in the breading.
The company, based in Springdale, Arkansas, said the recall was made after it was notified June 6 by a supplier that the bread crumbs Tyson received could contain milk, reported The Associated Press.
Meanwhile, a ConAgra recall is targeting more than 700,000 pounds of spaghetti and meatball products canned under six labels because of misbranding and undeclared allergens. The culprit? Errant bread crumbs containing milk (story below).
According to Tyson, the recall is limited to food-service customers and the products are not available for purchase in retail stores. Company spokeswoman Caroline Ahn says the meat was shipped to 30 states.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Tyson's records show schools have purchased products through the company's commercial channels.
There have been no confirmed reports of illness due to the products.
