Tyson Foods Recalls Chicken Strip Products Due to Possible Foreign Matter Contamination

May 5, 2019

Tyson Foods, Inc., a Rogers, Ark. establishment, is recalling approximately 11,829,517 million pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of metal, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip items were produced on various dates from Oct. 1, 2018, through March 8, 2019, and have “Use By Dates” of Oct. 1, 2019, through March 7, 2020. The chart contains a list of the products subject to recall.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-7221” on the back of the product package. These items were shipped to retail and Department of Defense locations nationwide, for institutional use nationwide and to the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The problem was discovered when FSIS received two consumer complaints of extraneous material in the chicken strip products. FSIS is now aware of six complaints during this time frame involving similar pieces of metal with three alleging oral injury.

Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

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.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

    I returned a package of these, with the “P-7221” number, to The Food Lion in Charlotte Hall yesterday. I asked if all the packages had been removed and replaced with new products. After being informed that this had been done, I went to the back to get a replacement. And, behold the entire display contained packages with the “P-7221” number. Beware!!

    I wondered why they were so unusually tasty. Must have been the new extraneous ingredients! Mmmm!

    The chance of you actually getting one with crap inside is still nill. They just do this IN CASE, just to potentially cover their ass. It’s BS, really, but good job soccer dad snowflake.

    Nearly 12 million pounds of chicken? How many illegal aliens in sanctuary cities can you feed with that? Don’t dump your packages – donate them to sanctuary cities. :-) Bwahahaha!

    If FOOD LION is refusing to take these products off the shelf, then they need to be boycotted.

    I cannot believe that their management refuses to participate in public safety measures as serious as this.

    And those of you that think that your chances of missing out (on the rat feces or broken glass that fell into the vats) are excellent, then by all means – EAT UP!
