Tyson Foods, the nation's largest chicken producer, issued a voluntary recall yesterday for nearly 20 tons of its Weaver Chicken Breast Patties. The problem was discovered after consumers found "extraneous materials," which may have included "pieces from a mechanical seal or gasket," according to an email sent to Newsweek from a Tyson representative.

These frozen, breaded and fully-cooked patties were produced on January 31 of this year and issued to retail locations nationwide. The recalled products in question are 26-ounce resealable plastic bags of Weaver Chicken Breast Patties with a "Best If Used By" date of January 31, 2020.

Currently, eight different lot codes are under recall: 0319PBF0617, 0319PBF0618, 0319PBF0619, 0319PBF0620, 0319PBF0621, 0319PBF0622, 0319PBF0623, and 0319PBF0600. To find your lot code, simply check the bag's label.

The FSIS advises consumers to check their freezers and discard the product immediately or return to its original place of purchase. Consumers with further questions about the recall can call or text Tyson Foods' Consumer Relations hotline at (855) 382-3101.
