    "Tyson Foods has announced a major recall of their chicken wings.

    The company says "Buffalo Style Boneless Chicken Wyngz" were packaged in
    bags meant for "Honey BBQ Flavored Boneless Chicken Wyngz," and contain
    allergens milk, soy and egg, which are not declared on the label.

    The recalled products are:

    •25.5 ounce bags with the use by date "Aug 072013" or "Aug 082013"
    •12.75 pound shipping cases of "Fully Cooked Boneless Chicken Wyngz
    Buffalo Style."

    Tyson Foods was alerted to the problem through consumer complaints.

    No illnesses have been reported."

    Serves them right for calling them "Wyngz".

    Why would they need "2% or less of ... egg solids.... nonfat milk ...
    soy flour..." in Buffalo "wyngz" anyway? Maybe they should just make
    real food without a couple dozen unnecessary ingredients?

    What would you recommend for alternate breading ingredients for boneless
    wings?

    Because they're Tyson's? Everything I've seen from them have
    unnecessary ingredients. WTF for? Flavor? blah

    I use flour, cornstarch, and corn meal on my *wings*.

    Also note that their other flavor(s) (at least their honey BBQ) does
    not have those 3 allergenic ingredients. And they managed to bread
    those just fine.

    The whole food additive thing is an endless cycle. Most of them are
    to facilitate mass production, extend shelf life, cover up
    flaws/beautify, and then others are added to counteract the effects of
    each other. They are not for flavor or wholesomeness.

    And it works quite effectively. My *wings* from 2 nights ago (with
    good 'ol fashioned BONES)

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/sqwertz...in/photostream

    These I used rice flour instead of cornstarch - was out of corn
    starch.

    They were clearly called "wyngz" not wings. If that isn't a big
    enough clue then the terminally stupid get what they paid for.

    Gary

    Sorry for piggy backing your post. I'm Friday cold, tired and
    lazy.

    At the ACME supermarket today I went to the back wall Tyson and
    Banquet freezer cabinets but it was all Banquet breaded chicken
    "things."

    Either they did a "Total Recall" measure or it was part of the
    Supermarket Shuffle to the inner frozen food aisles.

    After readding this thread, I didn't mind passing up the hunt.

    Best,

    Andy

    Just for the record, when I buy chicken, I want it all...skin and bones.
    Same with ground beast, I want the cheap stuff that has more fat and more
    flavor. You pour off most of that rendered fat anyway. Just me but I like
    real food, not all this touchy-feely supposedly heathy food that doesn't
    have such a good taste.

    And if anyone wants to say I'll die sooner because of my (bad) habits, let
    me say this. I might die sooner but I'll die happier. "Eat what you want,
    just don't eat it all the time."

    That's always an option but if people don't file complaints, the FTC
    can't take action.

    File a complaint with the FTC over the use of the term "wyngz"?

    I think you have the wrong thread, but you might be onto something...

    OTOH, I just looked at the package and it says "Contains no wing meat.
    Breaded white meat chicken....".

    Just be careful when they come out with "Buffalo Style Chucken
    Wyngz(tm) and USDA Grade A Terkey Burgers".

    I posted an "ignore" follow up because I responded to the wrong post of
    Gary's but I'm not sure it'll show up. I have nothing to say about Gary
    Larson cartoons, but I used to like them a lot. lol

    LOL, yeah. I'm having news reader issues, user error of course. I've
    had the worst cold this week and it's impacting everything. I don't
    have any leave left from work so I've been working, though from home so
    I don't infect anyone.
