Nearly 12M pounds of Tyson chicken strips recalled

National

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection service report Tyson Foods is recalling almost 12 million pounds of frozen chicken.

The ready-to-eat chicken strips may be contaminated with “extraneous materials,” pieces of metal. 

The items were produced from Oct. 1, 2018 through March 8, 2019 and were used by the dates of Oct. 1, 2019 through March 7, 2020.

The USDA states the problem was discovered when the Food Safety Inspection Service received two consumer complaints of metal pieces being in the chicken strip products.

FSIS is now aware of six complaints, and three that have allegedly caused mouth injuries. Consumers who have purchased the products are urged to not consume them.
