(WFTV) – Tyson Foods, Inc., is recalling nearly 12 million pounds of frozen chicken strip products that could be contaminated with pieces of metal, federal safety officials said in a news release Saturday.
Tyson Foods, based out of Rogers, Arkansas, is recalling 11,829,517 pounds of the frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strips, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The latest recall concerns products produced from Oct. 1, 2018, through March 8, 2019, FSIS said. The packages contained “use by dates” of Oct. 1, 2019, through March 7, 2020, according to the news release.
The recalled products contain the number “P-7221” on the back of the package and were shipped nationwide and to the U.S. Virgin Islands, according to FSIS.
