Tyson Foods is voluntarily recalling about 800 kilograms of fully cooked, frozen chilli tortilla product that might be contaminated with pieces of plastic, the US Agriculture Department has said.

USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service said it had not received any reports of illness related to the product from the Arkansas-based company.

The chilli tortilla product was produced on 30 January 30 and sent to Market Day, a food service company in Chicago. Market Day distributed it to customers through Internet sales and organisation fund-raising sales in southern and eastern states.

"Because of the potential for injury, we want consumers to be aware of the recall,"​ said William Hudnall, acting administrator of the inspection service. "Consumers who have concerns about the product are urged not to eat it and (to) notify the company."

Tyson notified the inspection service after being alerted to the potential contamination by Market Day.
