The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food Safety and Inspection Service, says there’s been an expansion of a recall of ready-to-eat chicken because it was contaminated with extraneous materials.

They said Tyson Foods, Inc. is recalling 11,829,517 pounds of frozen chicken strip products that had pieces of metal in them.

The products were produced from October 1, 2018 through March 8, 2019 and have “use by” dates of October 1, 2019 through March 7, 2020.

The problem was discovered when two consumers reported the materials in the chicken. There are now six complaints involving pieces of metal found, with three claiming oral injury.

The chicken strips were shipped nationwide, and bear the establishment number “P-7221” on the back of the packaging.

You can see a list of those products below.
