Tyson Foods has recalled some of its chicken tenders over concerns of plastic inside of the breading. 

The company says it has recalled more than 3,000 pounds of its frozen breaded chicken.

Federal food safety officials say the breading may be contaminated with plastic.

According to the FDA , the frozen, uncooked, and breaded chicken tenderloins were produced on 17 May 2018 and are sold as 12-lb. boxes containing 3-lb. plastic bags of "UNCOOKED, BREADED, ORIGINAL CHICKEN TENDERLOINS," with a lot code of 1378NLR02.

The frozen chicken tenders are labeled with code P-746 on the packaging.
