Madelia, Minnesota-based Tony Downs Food Company, Inc. is recalling more than 48 tons of chicken products that may be contaminated with hard plastic materials. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) made the announcement after investigating consumer complaints.

The thermally processed, commercially sterile canned chunk chicken breast items were produced in late November. Packaged in 12.5 and 50-ounce cans, the chicken was distributed to retail stores around the country. There have been no confirmed reports of illness or adverse reactions due to consuming these products.
