TAMPA, Fla. (FOX 13) - Tyson Foods is recalling more than 69,000 pounds of its frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strips saying there could be “foreign” matter in it – specifically metal.
At least two customers complained of extraneous material in their Tyson frozen chicken strips, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. There have been no reported injuries, but health officials said consumers should throw the chicken away or return them to the store it was purchased.
The recall was announced Thursday for three different Tyson products. The following are subject to the recall:
25-ounce plastic bag packages of frozen “Tyson Fully Cooked Buffalo Style Chicken Breast Strips Fritters With Rib Meat And Buffalo Style Sauce.” The packages have a “best-used date” of Nov. 30, 2019 and case codes 3348CNQ0317 and 3348CNQ0318.
