Tyson Chicken Strips Recalled For Foreign Material Sold at Kroger, Walmart, Target

Update: A spokeswoman for SHOP ‘n SAVE told Food Poisoning Bulletin that none of its independently owned and operated stores supplied by its Pittsburgh distribution facility, including the stores in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, and Ohio, are affected by this recall. 

Tyson Foods recalled 70,000 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strips products on March 22, 2019, and expanded that recall to include almost 12,000,000 pounds on May 4, 2019 for foreign material contamination. Metal pieces were found inside the product. Six consumer complaints triggered the recall; three injuries were reported.

Now the USDA has published the retail distribution list for this product; it was sold at Target, Kroger, Walmart, Hy-Vee, Walgreens, and CVS stores, among others, around the country. In addition, the recalled products were exported to Hong Kong, Bermuda, and St. Maarten.

These products have “Use By Dates” of October 1, 2019 through May 7, 2019. You can see a chart of the recalled products, including the brand names, package sizes, and how they were packaged, at the USDA web site. Some of the recalled products include Honey BBQ Flavored Chicken Strips, Great Value Fully Cooked Chicken Strips, Food Lion Crispy Chicken Strips, Kirkwood Honey BBQ Flavored Chicken Strips, Meijer Chicken Strips Buffalo Style, Spare Time Buffalo-Style Chicken Strip Fritters, Tyson Buffalo Chicken Strips, and Giant Eagle Crispy Chicken Strips, among others.
