The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Safety Inspection Services has recalled more than 245,000 pounds of “Banquet Chicken Strips Meals.” The recall is because the product may contain pieces of plastic.

They have a ‘Best if used by dates’ of December 11, 20-24, January 1, 20-25, or January 7, 20-25.

From the USDA:

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. P-9” printed on the side of the carton. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide and were also sold online.

The problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS that it received a consumer complaint of plastic in the chicken strip portion of the product, which resulted in an oral injury associated with consumption of this product.

FSIS has received no additional reports of injury or illness from consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
