WASHINGTON D.C. (KXAN) — Tyson Foods is recalling approximately 12 millions pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken tenders that may be contaminated with pieces of metal, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

This is an expansion of an original recall from March 21, 2019. The recalled product will have a “P-7221” establishment number on the back of the package.

The ready-to-eat products have “use by dates” between Oct. 1, 2019-March 7, 2020.

The Food Safety and Inspection Service received six consumer complaints about a foreign material in the chicken strips causing oral injury to three people.

FSIS is concerned that some product may still be in consumers’ freezers
