Nope, no Tyson chicken strips for lunch.

Tyson Foods Inc. recalled 69,093 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip products in March due to contamination of "extraneous materials." These materials included pieces of metal, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

But the FSIS is concerned the product may still be in your fridge.

The Buffalo-style chicken strips were produced on Nov. 30, 2018 and "were shipped to retail locations nationwide and for institutional use in locations in Michigan and Washington."

Here are the product descriptions:

  • 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.

The problem was discovered when the FSIS received two consumer complaints of foreign items in the chicken strips. So far, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions from eating the products.
