WASHINGTON, DC - Approximately 70,000 pounds of Tyson Foods, frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strips may be contaminated with pieces of metal, announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The recall was initiated after two consumer complaints were received.
The frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strips that are being recalled were produced on November 30, 2018 and are identified as:
- 25-oz. plastic bag packages of frozen “Tyson Fully Cooked Buffalo Style Chicken Strips Chicken Breast Strip Fritters with Rib Meat and Buffalo Style Sauce with “BEST IF USED BY NOV 30 2019,” case codes 3348CNQ0317 and 3348CNQ0318, and individual bag time stamps from 17:00 through 18:59 hours (inclusive).
- 25-oz. plastic bag packages of frozen “Tyson Fully Cooked Crispy Chicken Strips Chicken Breast Strip Fritters with Rib Meat with “BEST IF USED BY NOV 30 2019,” case codes 3348CNQ0419, 3348CNQ0420, 3348CNQ0421, and 3348CNQ0422, and individual bag time stamps from 19:00 through 22:59 hours (inclusive).
- 20-lb. cases of frozen “Spare Time Fully Cooked, Buffalo Style Chicken Strips Chicken Breast Strip Fritters with Rib Meat and Buffalo Style Sauce with “BEST IF USED BY NOV 30 2019,” and case code 3348CNQ03.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-7221” on the back of the product package and were shipped nationwide, stated the FSIS. For product clarification, the last two digits of the product case codes correspond to the hour produced and will match the first two numbers of the time stamp (as depicted on the label), they said.
Although there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions from these products, the FSIS is concerned that the products may be in consumers' freezers. The products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase, said the FSIS.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Tyson Foods Consumer Relations at 1-866-886-8456.
