— Tyson Foods Inc. is recalling more than 51,000 pounds of frozen raw chicken breast tenderloin over concerns it may contain soy.

The world's largest meat processor said Thursday that soy, a known allergen, was not declared on the product's label.

Tyson says the meat came from a plant in Vicksburg, Miss., between July 23 and Aug. 1, and was shipped to Tyson food service distributors nationwide.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says it has received no reports about people being sickened by the chicken.

    Maybe they fed them soy, because the price of corn got to high...

    Why is there soy in the chicked? Is this because soy was fed to the chicken? I really don't understand this.

    This is not news. Manufacturers and the food industry, in general, are notorious for what they don't put on the labels or for what they do as "natural additives." Yes, soy can be an allergan for some people. But, what is not known and worse, is accepted, are all the growth hormones, pesticides, and antibiotics the poultry industry uses routinely in ALL the chickens they produce, and YOU eat. Why does THIS not bother most consumers???
