WASHINGTON – A Tyson Foods facility in Rogers, Arkansas, is recalling 11,829,517 million lbs. of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of metal, according to the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the US Dept. of Agriculture.
The latest recall was reissued after the first recall was announced on March 21.
The problem was discovered when FSIS received two consumer complaints of extraneous material in the chicken strip products. The agency is now aware of six complaints during this time frame involving similar pieces of metal with three alleging oral injury.
The frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip items were produced on various dates from Oct. 1, 2018, to March 8, 2019, and have “use by dates” of Oct. 1, 2019, through March 7, 2020.

The affected products bear establishment number “P-7221” on the product package. FSIS said the items were shipped to retail locations nationwide and Department of Defense locations for institutional use nationwide and to the US Virgin Islands.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
