Tyson Foods is recalling about 69,093 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip products that may be contaminated with pieces of metal.
Officials with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced the recall on Thursday, saying they’re concerned that some products may be in consumers’ freezers.
The problem was discovered when FSIS received two consumer complaints of extraneous material.
