Is it just me, or have there been a lot of food product recalls lately. I mean honestly, how does all this extraneous stuff end up in our food! The latest recall is from Tyson Foods and may involve products you have in your freezer right now.
The products are ready-to-eat chicken strip products which could be contaminated with small pieces of metal. The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), issued the alert on these products and considers it a Class 1 recall with a high health risk.
At this point, however, the FSIS has only received two complaints from people who consumed the products and there have been no injuries or health issues reported due to eating the chicken strips.
