Tyson Recalls Chicken Strips Over Metal

The USDA says it received multiple complaints from consumers.


WASHINGTON (AP) — Arkansas-based Tyson Foods is recalling more than 69,000 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strips because they may be contaminated with pieces of metal. The products subject to recall include 25-ounce bags of Buffalo style and crispy chicken strips, as well as 20-pound cases of the Buffalo style product.

The U.S. Agriculture Department said Thursday that these products were produced on November 30, 2018 and distributed to retail stores nationwide, as well as for institutional use Michigan and Washington. The USDA says it received two complaints about the metal, but there are no confirmed reports of anyone being injured.

The recall comes after a similar Tyson recall in January that centered on chicken nuggets containing pieces of soft, blue rubber.
