"This is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death," the statement notes under the classification category.

The frozen food items were shipped to retail locations in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, North Carolina and South Carolina, according to the statement. The manufacturer noticed the ingredient was missing from the packages on Friday.

The USDA states that there have not been any reports of illnesses or reactions from consuming the products. The department urges that anyone who is concerned about an injury or illness from consuming the product should contact a healthcare provider.

In January, Tyson Foods Inc. recalled more than 18 tons of chicken nuggets after consumers found rubber in the product. The company recalled the 5 lb plastic packages of "Tyson White Meat Panko Chicken Nuggets," according to the FSIS.

"A small number of consumers contacted the company to say they had found small pieces of soft, blue plastic in the nuggets, prompting the company to issue the recall," Tyson said in a statement in January. "Though the pieces have been found in a very small number of packages, no injuries have been reported with this recall; however, out of an abundance of caution, the company is recalling 36,420 pounds of product."
