The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to anyone eating these patties, government officials said.
The beef patties were produced on Nov. 30, 2018, and the problem was discovered on Monday when the Enid, Oklahoma-based company received two consumer complaints about the contamination.
The recalled products are 14.06-lb. cases containing three bags with 30 pieces for a total of 90 portions of "CN FULLY COOKED FLAMEBROILED BEEF PATTIES CARAMEL COLOR ADDED" with case code 155-525-0 and package code 8334.
The recalled items carry the establishment number "EST. 2260E" inside the USDA mark of inspection and were shipped to food service locations nationwide.
While the product was distributed to schools, the government said that it was from a commercial sale and not part of food provided by the USDA for the National School Lunch Program.
The USDA said it is concerned that some of these products may be frozen and located in food service freezers. Any food service that has purchases the suspect beef patties are being asked not to serve or consume them. The patties should be thrown away or returned to where they purchased.
Shares of Tyson Foods were down slightly to $69 in premarket trading.
