TGI Fridays-branded chicken bites sold at grocery stores nationwide recalled due to plastic contamination

Approximately 13 tons of TGI Fridays-branded chicken sold at major U.S. grocery stores is being recalled after consumers complained of finding pieces of plastic in the product.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Friday that the affected Honey BBQ-flavored boneless chicken bites had not yet led to any confirmed reports of injury or illness.

The product is manufactured by Arkansas-based Simmons Prepared Foods Inc. and distributed by Kraft Heinz.

The problem was discovered when Simmons reported to the USDA that clear, hard plastic had been found under the breading of some of the bites. In a release, Simmons said the plastic pieces were likely fragments from safety glasses.

The product is sold by most major grocers including Target and Walmart.

A representative for Kraft Heinz referred a request for comment to the USDA release. A representative for Fridays did not respond to a request for comment.

CORRECTION (Dec. 20, 2023, 11:58 a.m. ET): A previous version of this article misstated the retailers that carry TGI Fridays-branded chicken. The list includes Target and Walmart, but not Dollar General or CVS.
