Two massive food recalls have been announced over the weekend, one of them targeting breaded chicken products and the other spaghetti and meatball goods.
The breaded chicken products recall was issued by Tyson Foods Inc. and announced on June 09 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). On Friday, the authority revealed that the company issued a recall of almost 2,500,000 pounds of RTE (ready-to-eat) breaded chicken products.
These were recalled due to possible misbranding and also undeclared allergens. FSIS announced that such products contain milk, which is a very well known allergen but that is not declared on the label.
These RTE goods were produced and packaged over a larger period and on various dates from August 17, 2016, up to January 14, 2017. The FSIS release offers a complete list with the labels of the recalled products. These bear the “P-1325” establishment number inside the USDA’s mark of inspection.
The RTE breaded chicken goods were shipped nationwide. According to reports, the issues were detected on June 06, 2017, after a notification sent in by an ingredient supplier. Tyson Foods Inc. was notified that the bread crumbs it received and utilized in these RTE goods could potentially contain undeclared milk.
Presently, there are no confirmed cases of adverse reactions tied to these products. People should check and see if they purchased a recalled product. If they do, this should be thrown away or returned to its point of sale.

The second of the two massive food recalls targets Conagra Brands Inc. spaghetti and meatball products. This includes over 700,000 pounds of such goods, also due to misbranding and potentially undeclared allergens.
