Lower Merion Township, PA — Tyson Foods' recall of almost 12 million pounds of chicken strips that could have metal fragments inside, has found its way to Lower Merion. A check of the Acme store on Lancaster Avenue in Wynnewood and the Giant in the Wynnewood Shopping Center found that the product had been removed from the shelves.
The recall was expanded when more consumers across the country reported finding fragments of metal in a small number of products, reads a Tyson press release.
A statement issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service confirms the additional 11+ million pound recall.
Two consumers complained about "extraneous material" in the Tyson chicken strip products. To date, there have been a total of six complaints, three of which alleged oral injury.
