WASHINGTON (KKTV) - Nearly 200,000 pounds of chicken products sold in schools nationwide have been recalled amid concerns of plastic in the food.

Tyson Foods announced it was pulling 190,757 pounds of ready-to-eat Golden Crispy Chicken Chunk Fritters after three schools found plastic in the product last week. There were no reports of injury or illness.

The latest recall is one of several Tyson recalls this calendar year, but unlike previous recalls, the ready-to-eat fritters were only shipped to schools and other institutions and were not sold in stores.

Schools and other food services locations nationwide are advised to check their freezers. The product can be thrown out or returned to the place of purchase.
