WASHINGTON – Tyson Foods of Arkansas recalls over 69,000 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strips because they may be contaminated with pieces of metal.
The US Agriculture Department said Thursday that products would be produced on November 30, 2018, and best used by November 30, 2019. The products have the company number "P-7221" on the back of the packages.
The USDA said it had received two complaints about the metal, but there are no confirmed reports of injuries.
The USDA is concerned that the products may still be in freezers. Consumers should throw away the packages or return them to the place of purchase.
The recall comes after Tyson recalled some chicken nuggets in January because customers said they found pieces of "soft blue rubber" in it. Here are details from the USDA:
