Thursday, safety officials said Tyson Foods is recalling 69,093 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strips because they may contain pieces of metal. That’s according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

All of the affected bags of chicken strips have a use-by date of November 30th, 2019. There have been two customer complaints but no reported illnesses or injuries.

Products under the recall include: Tyson fully cooked buffalo-style chicken strips in 25-ounce bags, Tyson fully cooked crispy chicken strips in 25-ounce bags and Spare Time fully cooked buffalo-style chicken strips in a 20-pound case.

FSIS discovered the problem because of two consumer complaints about extraneous materials in chicken strip products, the agency said.

Consumers are urged to throw away or return products that might be impacted and not to consume them.
