Tyson Foods has significantly expanded a recall of its chicken strips over concerns that some might be contaminated with pieces of metal, federal food safety officials said Friday.
The recall affects about 69,093 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip products produced on November 30, 2018, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said in a news release.
In the previous recall, the products had only one use-by date: November 30, 2019.
All affected products have a use-by date of November 30, 2019.
The Food Safety and Inspection Service said it initially discovered the problem because of two consumer complaints about extraneous materials in chicken strip products.
In January, Tyson recalled 36,420 pounds of chicken nuggets after a consumer reported finding rubber in the chicken nuggets.
Also in January, Perdue issued a recall after receiving three complaints from consumers who reported finding wood in gluten-free chicken nuggets.
There have been no confirmed reports of illness or injury from consumption of these products, FSIS said.
