Tyson Expands Recall of Chicken Strips For Foreign Material

Tyson Foods is expanding their March 21, 2019 recall of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip products for possible foreign material contamination, more specifically, pieces of metal. Then, about 70,000 pounds of product were recalled, including many more brands and varieties. Now, 11,828,517 pounds of the product is being recalled. There are six complaints about pieces of metal in the product; three of those complaints involve an oral injury.

The recalled product is frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strips items that wee produced on dates ranging from October 1, 2018 to March 8, 2019. The product has “Use By Dates” of October 1, 2019 through March 7, 2020.

The USDA has produced a chart containing a list of products that are recalled, including Buffalo Style Chicken Strips, Great Value Chicken Strips, Best Choice Buffalo Style Chicken Strips, Food Lion Crispy Chicken Strips, Meijer Crispy Chicken Strips, Kirkwood Honey BBQ Flavored Chicken Strips, Giant Eagle Crispy Chicken Strips, Hannaford Buffalo-Style Chicken Strips, and Spare Time Fully Cooked Chicken Breast Strip Fritters, among others. You can see pictures of product labels at the USDA web site.

FSIS is concerned that these products may be in consumers’ freezers. Check your freezer carefully, using the chart linked above. If you have any of these products, do not eat them. Throw them away or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund.

The pieces of metal may present a choking or mouth injury hazard. Anyone who is concerned about an injury should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS is conducting retail effectiveness checks to make sure these products are no longer on store shelves. When a retail distribution list is available, it will be posted on the USDA web site.
