Tyson Foods has issued a recall for frozen chicken patty products over concerns they were possibly contaminated with “extraneous materials,” said the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The recall affects about 39,100 pounds of Weaver brand frozen fully cooked chicken patties produced on Jan. 31. The patties were sold in 26-ounce resealable bags with a “used by” date of Jan. 31, 2020, said the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service in a statement.

The bags targeted in the recall include the number “P-13456” printed on the back of the resealable bag, said the agency. The FSIS statement said the patties may have been contaminated with “foreign matter” but did not offer additional details.

FSIS said they were notified of potential contamination after consumers complained.

The agency says anyone who has purchased patties affected by the recall should toss them out or return them to the retailer where they were bought. Anyone worried they might get sick from eating the patties is urged to contact a health care provider.

In June, Tyson Foods recalled more than 190,000 pounds of chicken fritters after consumers reportedly found hard plastic in their food.
