It was just announced that over 69,000 pounds of Tyson Foods’ Inc. ready-to-eat chicken strips are being recalled due to the presence of hard pieces of metal found in the meat. This has been deemed a Class I recall with a high health risk and though no illnesses have been reported, consumers are urged to throw away affected product or return it to original place of purchase.
The issue was revealed when two complaints of extraneous pieces in the chicken were reported to the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). Affected product bears the establishment number “P-7221” and were produced on November 30, 2018.
25-ounce packages of frozen, fully cooked crispy chicken strips and buffalo style chicken strips were affected, as well as 20-pound cases of buffalo style chicken strips. A full list of recalled product and case codes can be found here.
