Chicken is some of the most popular meat sold in grocery stores in America. Millions of people eat chicken on a daily basis.

Sadly, a massive recall has just been issued for a major brand of chicken strips. Now, the company has announced they are voluntarily expanding the recall in light of recent findings.

"Tyson Foods Opens a New Window. is recalling 11.8 million pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strips that may be contaminated with 'extraneous materials,' including metal,' according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The recall is a serious update on the original notice. The company had only recalled 69,000 pounds of chicken initially. Now, millions of dollars in product has been added to that list.

"The meat producer said it extended the recall after two customers complained that they recently found extraneous materials in their chicken strips. Since March, the FSIS has had six complaints involving metal pieces, with three alleging oral injuries," reported Fox.

The recalled items with the establishment number "P-72221" were produced from October through March 8 with the "used by" dates of Oct. 1, 2019, through March 7, 2020.
