Tyson chicken strips recalled due to possible metal contamination


Tyson Foods is recalling nearly 12 million pounds of chicken strips because they might contain metal.

This is an expansion of a recall on already 69,000 pounds of chicken strips that was announced last March.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service has received six complaints about the products involving pieces of metal with three alleging oral injury.

The latest recall includes products produced from October 1 through March 8, and have “use by” dates of October 1, 20-19 through March 7, 2020.

Customers are urged to throw away or return products that are under recall.
