Somedays we’re all just busy and maxed out and don’t feel like cooking. (If I’m being honest, that’s me every day.) So you reach for something quick and easy to pop in the microwave for dinner. Next time you do that – make sure it’s not this meal that’s been recalled!
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service has announced Conagra Brands is recalling approximately 245,366 pounds of frozen chicken strips entree products that may be contaminated with plastic.
The issue was discovered when the firm notified FSIS that it received a consumer complaint of plastic in the chicken strip portion of the meal, which resulted in an oral injury.
The chicken tender meals were sold nationwide – including here in Michigan. So check your freezer!
Here’s what to watch out for:
- 8.9-oz. carton containing one entree of “BANQUET CHICKEN STRIPS MEAL” with best if used by “DEC 11 2024,” “JAN 01 2025,” or “JAN 07 2025” and lot numbers 5009317120, 5009319220, or 5009319820 located on the side of the carton.
The frozen chicken strips entrees were produced on June 20, 2023, July 11, 2023, and July 17, 2023.
If you have purchased this product, throw it away or return it to where you bought it.
