Over 69,000 pounds of frozen chicken strips recalled by Tyson
Tyson recalled over 69,000 pounds of frozen chicken strips on Thursday because they may contain metal, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strips were produced on Nov. 30, 2018 and were shipped to retail locations nationwide, the department said in a release.
The recalled products all have “BEST IF USED BY NOV 30 2019” printed on them and have an establishment number of “P-7221″ on the back of their packaging.
The problem was discovered after the department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) received two complaints that metal was found in the chicken strips, officials said.
The department said that there were no reports of “adverse reactions” from anyone who has eaten the chicken and that anyone who was concerned about a “injury or illness” should call their doctor.
FSIS said it was concerned that people may have chicken strips in their freezers and anyone who does was asked to either throw them away or return them to the store from which they were purchased.
Anybody with questions about the recall was asked to call Tyson Foods Consumer Relations at 1-866-886-8456.
