The recall comes almost two months after the company recalled 36,420 pounds of frozen chicken nuggets after pieces of rubber were found in them.

The FSIS said the 11,829,517 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strips sold under the Tyson name, and produced between October 1 of 2018 and March 8, 2019, have "use by" dates of Oct.1, 2019 and March 7, 2020. The number "P-7221" is printed on the back of the recalled product package.

According to the USDA, the recall is due to a labeling error that should have shown the products contain milk.do not contain the label that they contain milk. FSIS said it is aware of six total complaints, including three alleged oral injuries, related to pieces of metal found in chicken during that period of time. Consumers are urged not to eat the products, but instead return them to the story where they were purchased or throw it away.

The problem was discovered when two consumers reported the materials in the chicken.
