On March 21, 2019, Tyson Foods recalled 69,000 pounds of their popular “Crispy Chicken Strips” and “Buffalo Style Chicken Strips” along with 20lb cases of “Spare Time” branded boxes of chicken strips. Consumers should be especially cautious of the first two products in question, as they are commonly sold in grocery stores across America. Please take the time to read this article and ensure that there are no dangerous Tyson products currently in your fridge or freezer. This is a serious public health risk and has been announced as a Class 1 recall by the USDA, the most serious classification of recalls.
The USDA discovered the issue when two consumers complained of “extraneous material” in Tyson chicken strips.
