Rogers, AR. (SafetyAlerts) - United States Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service, (FSIS) said that Tyson’s Foods, Inc. has recalled approximately 1,800 pounds of fully cooked, frozen chili tortilla product that may be contaminated with pieces of plastic.

The products subject to recall are 3.65 pound boxes of "Market Day, Fully Cooked, CHILI CRISPITOS, A Tightly Rolled Flour Tortilla With A Chicken Chili Filling." Each package bears a code "0302CNQ0823" or "0302CNQ0800," followed by the establishment code, "P7221." Each box also contains the USDA seal of inspection.

Market Day further distributed the product to consumers via Internet sales and organization fundraising sales in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey and Wisconsin.
