Tyson Foods, a major meat producer recalls an estimated 11.8 million pounds of chicken strip risk containing metal in their products.
It was announced that the product ‘may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of metal’
Six people have complained after finding pieces of metal in the products, with three suffering injuries to their mouths.
“FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase,” its website reads.
“Consumers expect that the food they eat is safe. In their best interest and in an abundance of caution we’re taking quick and decisive action to expand this recall,” said Barbara Masters, Tyson Foods’ Vice President of Regulatory Food Policy, Food, and Agriculture.
“We have discontinued use of the specific equipment believed to be associated with the metal fragments, and we will be installing metal-detecting X-ray machinery to replace the plant’s existing metal-detection system. We will also be using a third-party video auditing system for metal-detection verification.”
