Check your freezers! Almost 12 million pounds of popular chicken strip products from Tyson Foods, Inc. have been recalled.
The recall comes in response to six consumers filing a complaint about finding extraneous materials, specifically metal, in the chicken, according to the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
This is an expansion of the products that were first recalled in March of this year. Products were shipped to locations nationwide and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The health violation is classified as a “class I,” which means it poses a high health risk to consumers. As of May 5th, three customers have reported oral injuries. The injuries did not appear to be serious or life-threatening.
Tyson’s latest recall comes following a string of other chicken product recalls from the company. Earlier this year, Tyson recalled over 36,000 pounds of chicken nuggets after pieces of rubber were discovered. In 2017, Tyson also recalled over 2 million chicken products because of false labeling.
If you or someone you know has this product in your home, please trash it immediately or return to the place of purchase for a full refund. Any questions regarding this recall should be directed to Tyson Foods Consumer Relations at 1-866-886-8456.
