All affected products have a best if used by date of November 30, 2019 and bear establishment number “P-7221” on the back of the product package. For product clarification, the last two digits of the product case codes correspond to the hour produced and will match the first two numbers of the time stamp (as depicted on the label). These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide and for institutional use in locations in Michigan and Washington.
The USDA discovered the problem after receiving two consumer complaints about metal in the chicken strips. Currently, there have been no confirmed reports of anyone being injured.
The USDA is concerned that some of the product may be in consumers’ freezers, and are requesting that the products not be eaten, and either thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
