BREAKING NEWS – May 6, 2019
The March 21, 2019 Tyson chicken recall has been expanded to include an additional 11,760,424 pounds of product. This still includes frozen, ready to eat chicken strip products such as Crispy Chicken Strips and Buffalo Chicken Strips. The affected products have the establishment number “P-7221” printed on the back and may be contaminated with pieces of metal.
It was just announced that over 69,000 pounds of Tyson Foods’ Inc. ready-to-eat chicken strips are being recalled due to the presence of hard pieces of metal found in the meat. This has been deemed a Class I recall with a high health risk and though no illnesses have been reported, consumers are urged to throw away affected product or return it to original place of purchase.
The issue was revealed when two complaints of extraneous pieces in the chicken were reported to the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). Affected product bears the establishment number “P-7221” and were produced on November 30, 2018.
25-ounce packages of frozen, fully cooked crispy chicken strips and buffalo style chicken strips were affected, as well as 20-pound cases of buffalo style chicken strips. A full list of recalled product and case codes can be found here.
