Tyson Foods Inc. is recalling nearly 70,000 pounds of its Buffalo Style Boneless Chicken Wyngz, federal health officials announced.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection announced the recall Wednesday, citing allergens like milk, soy and egg that are not included on labels on Tyson's packaging.
The recalled food includes:

The establishment number "P13456" and the use by date "Aug 07 2013" or "Aug 08 2013" are inkjetted on the cases. Identifying case codes "2202PBF0208:xx" through "2202PBF0223:xx" or "2212PBF0200:xx" through "2212PBF0223:xx," where the last four digits represent hours and minutes ("xx") in military time, also can be found ink jetted on cases subject to recall.
The products were made Aug. 7 and 8, the USDA said, and were distributed to retail stores across the country.
Tyson was alerted to the problem through consumer complaints, according to a government news release.
