Tyson Chicken has issued a recall of nearly 35 tons of chicken after metal fragments were discovered in 2 packages of their chicken strip fritters.


The recall comes after the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) received complaints from two customers of metal fragments in their chicken.

According to the FSIS press release:

"The frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip items were produced on November 30, 2018. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF only)]"
"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 time stamps from 17:00 through 18:59 hours (inclusive)."
"25-oz. plastic bag packages of frozen "Tyson FULLY COOKED CRISPY CHICKEN STRIPS CHICKEN BREAST STRIP FRITTERS WITH RIB MEAT" with "BEST IF USED BY NOV 30 2019," case codes 3348CNQ0419, 3348CNQ0420, 3348CNQ0421, and 3348CNQ0422, and individual bag time stamps from 19:00 through 22:59 hours (inclusive)."
"20-lb. cases of frozen "SPARE TIME 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," and case code 3348CNQ03."

Those products being recalled will have the establishment number "P-7221" on the back of the package. Any customers who have questions about the recall can contact Tyson Foods Consumer Relations at 1-866-886-8456.

FSIS cautioned customers not to eat the chicken being recalled, and to either dispose of the product or return it to the store they purchased it from.

This is Tyson Foods' second recall this year. In January, they issued a recall of their chicken nuggets because of contamination with "foreign materials, specifically rubber."


Comments on Twitter were one part concern and 3 parts jokes, as is often the case.





Some people couldn't help but let their juvenile side peak out because of the amount of chicken.




Food recalls can be scary, especially when they come so close together like this, but at least someone is paying attention.

Manufacturers definitely need to do better to ensure that food doesn't get contaminated in the first place, but it could be so much worse if customers weren't informed of the defects.

Check your freezer and return these products if you have them!
