About 69,093 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken products have been recalled by Tyson Foods. The recall announced by the USDA Foods Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) cites products could be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of metal.

The products involved in the recall are listed below:

Ready-eat chicken strip items were produced on Nov. 30, 2018.

USDA said the problem was discovered when FSIS received two consumer complaints of extraneous material in the chicken strip products. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
