(WLNS) — Tyson Foods is recalling more than 52,000 pounds of chicken wings because they could have an “off-odor” scent, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The problem was first discovered when consumers noticed an odd smell from the 28-ounce bags of Tyson Any’tizers fully cooked buffalo-style chicken wings. There are some reports of mild illness after eating the chicken wings.

Tyson says it is recalling 52,486 pounds of the chicken product because it “does not meet Tyson Foods quality standards.”

The chicken included in the recall was produced on Oct. 24 and Oct. 25, 2015, at the Tyson facility in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, and were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

Each 28-ounce bag affected has the code P-13456 above the heating instructions on the back of the bag and Product UPC 0 23700 01118 3 as well as date codes including “2975PBF05” or “2985PBF05.” Additionally, each bag has a “Best if Used By” date of Oct. 24 or Oct. 25, 2016.

Tyson urges people to not eat the wings. Tyson recommends either throwing the wings away or returning them to the store where they were purchased.
