Tyson Foods Inc., a Russellville, Ark. establishment, is recalling approximately 127,000 lbs. of uncooked breaded chicken tenderloins and uncooked chicken tenderloin fritter products because of an undeclared allergen and misbranding. 

The product contains soy, a known allergen not declared on the label. 

The following products are subject to recall:

 20-lb. packages of "SPARE TIME Uncooked Chicken Tenderloin Fritters" bearing the establishment number P-5839 inside the USDA mark of inspection and a case code of 7083861.

10-lb. packages of "Tyson UNCOOKED, BREADED CHICKEN TENDERLOINS" bearing the establishment number P-5839 inside the USDA mark of inspection and a case code of 7083928.

The products were produced between March 1, 2013 and March 27, 2013 and shipped to food service companies nationwide for further distribution to restaurants and institutions. 

The cartons bear a package code of 0603TYLxxxx, 0663TYLxxxx, 0733TYLxxxx, 0773TYLxxxx, 0813TYLxxxx, or 0863TYLxxxx under the product code. The xxxx represents a time stamp.

The problem was discovered by the company and occurred as a result of a label change after reformulation of the product. A marinade ingredient that included an incorrect sub-ingredient (concentrated soy protein) was not declared on the label.  

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a health care provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and to ensure that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Tyson Foods Consumer Relations at (866) 886-8456.
