It might be time to swap those chicken wings in favor of a kale salad.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Tyson Foods, one of the nation’s largest largest meat providers, is recalling 52,486 pounds of its chicken due to an “off odor” in its Tyson® Any’tizers® Fully Cooked Hot Wings® Sections Coated with a Flavorful Hot, Tangy Sauce.

According to Newsweek, the wings were sold in 28 ounce bags nationwide with use by dates of October 24-25, 2016. The FSIS has asked for customers who purchased the product to throw it product away. The company received complaints about the smell, as well as a handful of people developing a “mild illness” due to consumption.
Back in September, Tyson Foods was connected with a farm facing charges of mistreatment of chickens. The company came forward after the incident, explaining, “We’re committed to animal well-being but don’t believe this video accurately depicts the treatment of chickens by the thousands of farmers who supply us.”
What caused the chicken wing odor is still unknown.
