Yet another meat recall is added to the growing list. This time, it’s for a very serious reason.
Tyson Foods is recalling 69,000 pounds of chicken strips that may contain metal, federal food safety officials reported according to CNN.
The recall applies to ready-to eat chicken strip products manufactured after November 30, 2018. Three types of chicken are included in the recall.
Tyson fully-cooked buffalo-style chicken strips are available in 25-ounce bags. Tyson crispy chicken strips are available in 25-ounce bags. Spare Time buffalo-style chicken strips are available in a 20-pound box.
All affected products are subject to a November 30, 2019 use-by deadline.
FSIS found the problem after receiving two complaints from consumers about extraneous ingredients in chicken strips products. Consumers are advised to return or throw away any products that may be affected and not to eat them.
FSIS stated that there have not been any reported cases of injury or illness from the consumption of these products.
Is this chicken in the freezer? You should check! It could be very serious for someone who is near a piece or metal.
