Tyson Recalls 50,000 Pounds Of Chicken Wings Because They Don’t Smell Right, Could Cause Illness

Screen Shot 2015-11-17 at 9.58.58 AMIf those Tyson hot wings sitting in the freezer don’t smell quite right, then they might be part of the company’s latest recall of more than 50,000 pounds of cooked chicken wings that could cause people who eat them to become sick. 

The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Tuesday that Tyson Foods recalled 52,486 pounds of Any’tizers Hot Wings after receiving several consumer complaints that the product had an “off odor” and consumption led to mild illness.

The recall covers 28-ounce bags of “Tyson Any’tizers Fully Cooked Hot Wings Chicken Wing Sections Coated With A Flavorful Hot, Tangy Sauce,” with use by/sell by dates of Oct. 24, 2016 and Oct. 25, 2016.

Products can be identified by the establishment number “P-13456” inside the USDA mark of inspection, as well as on the back of the bag above the heating instructions.

While FSIS has not confirmed any adverse reactions, such as illness, from consuming the products, customers are advised to not to eat the chicken. Instead, they should either throw the bags away or return them to the store where they were purchased for a refund.
