11 million pounds of frozen chicken strips recalled

Tyson Foods, Inc. is recalling over 11 million pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip products because they could be contaminated with metal pieces,  said the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The original recall was issued in March 2019 and included over 69,000 pounds. With the recent update, over 11 million pounds has been added to the recall.

The chicken strips were produced from Oct. 1, 2018, through March 8, 2019, and have “use by dates” of Oct. 1, 2019, through March 7, 2020.

The issue was discovered by FSIS when two complaints reported “extraneous material” in the chicken strips. Since the original recall, FSIS has received a total of six complaints with three of those complaints claiming injuries.

The frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strips were sold as:
