Tyson Foods voluntarily recalls 69,093 pounds of chicken strips on possible metal contamination

USA – Tyson Foods has voluntarily recalled approximately 69,093 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip products on fears that they could possibly be contaminated with pieces of metal.

After two consumers reported they found fragments of metal in the products, the company issued a voluntary recall of the products produced on November 30, 2018.

They include 65,313 pounds of Tyson® Fully Cooked Buffalo Style Chicken Strips and Fully Cooked Crispy Chicken Strips sold to retailers in 25-ounce bags, and 3,780 pounds of Spare Time® branded Fully Cooked Buffalo Style Chicken Strips sold to retailers and correctional institutions in 20-pound boxes.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-7221” on the back of the product package and were shipped to retail locations nationwide and for institutional use in locations in Michigan and Washington.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) recall advice, no confirmed cases of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products have been reported.

“The problem was discovered when FSIS received two consumer complaints of extraneous material in the chicken strip products,” said FSIS.

“There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.  

“FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them.

These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.”

This is the second major recall by the multinational food company, which in January recalled about 36,420 pounds of White Meat Panko chicken nuggets over possible contamination with rubber.

Also, in the same month packaged meat producer Perdue Foods issued a recall after receiving three complaints from consumers who reported finding wood in gluten-free chicken nuggets.

In June last year, Tyson Foods recalled 3,120 pounds of breaded chicken tenderloins, after a supplier notified that an ingredient could be contaminated with pieces of blue and clear soft plastic.
