Apparently, nothing is sacred when it comes to food recalls, not even delicious, Chicken Tenders . This week, Tyson Foods Inc. voluntarily recalled three types of frozen chicken strips for possible foreign body contamination, especially pieces of metal.
Indeed, according to a warning of the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) last week, Tyson calls for two consumer complaints about "foreign material" in the products at 69,093 Pound of meat back.
The recalled products are:
- 25-oz. "Tyson FULLY COOKED BUFFALO STYLE CHICKEN STRIPS" plastic bag packages "RIB MEAT AND BUFFALO SAUCE chicken breast strips" with "BEST IF USED FROM 30 NOV 309" and 3348CNQ0317 and individual pocket time stamps 00 through and including 18:59 hours. 19659005] 25 oz Plastic Tent Packs of Frozen "Tyson FULLY COOKED CHICKEN Chicken Strips" Ribboned Chicken Breast "with" best used until November 30, 2019 ", case numbers 3348CNQ0419, 3348CNQ0420, 3348CNQ021 and 400840. 00 through 22:59 inclusive hours.

All affected products were manufactured on 30th November 2018 and on 30th November 2019 "best used". You also have the code "P-7221" on the back of the package. These products have been shipped to retailers nationwide.
If you have one of the recalled products, follow these steps.
If you bought one of the recalled chicken strips, you should not eat them. Instead, FSIS states that you can return it to where you bought it, or simply discard it. Tyson's Site shows images of the affected product packaging.
So far, no adverse events have been reported in connection with the recall. However, it can be both disconcerting and risky to seek outward pieces of metal in your chicken strips. If you are worried about illness or injury related to the recalled products, you should talk to your doctor about it.
