WASHINGTON – Tyson Foods is recalling about 69,000 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip products because they might be contaminated with pieces of metal.

The following recalled items were produced on November 30, 2018:

  • 25-oz. plastic bag packages of frozen “Tyson FULLY COOKED BUFFALO STYLE CHICKEN STRIPS CHICKEN BREAST STRIP FRITTERS WITH RIB MEAT AND BUFFALO STYLE SAUCE” with “BEST IF USED BY NOV 30 2019,” case codes 3348CNQ0317 and 3348CNQ0318, and individual bag timestamps from 17:00 through 18:59 hours (inclusive).

People who have bought the recalled items should not consume them, and should either throw them away or return them to the store where they were purchased.
