Tyson Expands Chicken Recall to Include 12 Million Pounds Nationwide
When we try to think of kid-friendly food that the whole family loves, we often think of chicken strips. Our kids definitely love them, but we can make them a little more grown-up with certain dipping sauces.
Sure, we could make our own chicken strips, but sometimes we need something quick and easy. We’ve turned to Tyson chicken strips more than once. If you have chicken strips in your freezer, listen up, because there’s a new recall.
Back in March, Tyson announced a chicken strip recall. This came after three people reported that they found metal pieces in the chicken strips.
At that time, the recall only affected three types of chicken strip products with a “best if used by” date of November 30, 2019.
Now, Tyson has announced that even more chicken strips are being recalled. This is due to the fact that six people have found metal pieces in the chicken strips, and three of those people ended up being injured in their mouths by the products.
Yikes! We certainly don’t want to bite into a chicken strip only to get an injury!
Check your freezers because the following chicken strips with a “use by” date ranging from October 1, 2019, through March 7, 2020, are now being recalled:
- Best Choice Buffalo-style chicken strips in 20-ounce bags
- Food Lion crispy chicken strips in 25-ounce bags
- Great Value fully cooked chicken strips in 25-ounce bags
- Tyson fully cooked Buffalo-style chicken strips in 25-ounce and 40-ounce bags
- Tyson fully cooked crispy chicken strips in 25-ounce and 40-ounce bags
- Tyson fully cooked honey BBQ flavored chicken strips in 25-ounce bags
In addition to the use by date and the name of the product, also check the back of the package to see if it has the establishment number “P-7221.” If it does, it’s being recalled.
If you have one or more of the recalled products in your freezer right now, you can either throw it away or return it to the store where you bought it for a refund.
