The manufacturer has recalled its 12-pound boxes containing 3-pound plastic bags of uncooked, breaded, original chicken tenderloins with the lot code 1378NLR02.

The USDA says the products have establishment number "P-746" on the packaging.

The tenderloins were produced May 17, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Tyson Foods Inc.is recalling thousands of frozen breaded chicken products. There have been no confirmed reports of any adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

Last year, Tyson recalled about 2.5 million pounds of ready-to-eat breaded chicken "due to misbranding and undeclared allergens".

This is not the first time such a recall took place for Tyson Foods.

The FSIS said products in freezers at food service institutions should be thrown away and not served.

The chicken being recalled is not available to purchase in grocery stores, but was shipped to restaurants for sale in menu items.

FSIS said Tyson Foods notified the agency that the breading supplier was recalling the ingredients as soon as the problem was discovered. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day.
