More than 245,000 pounds of Banquet frozen chicken strip entrees have been recalled over concerns they may contain plastic after a consumer reportedly suffered an oral injury after eating one of the products.
Missouri-based Conagra Brands issued the recall on 245,366 pounds of Banquet Chicken Strips Meals with best-by dates of Dec. 11, 2024; Jan. 1, 2025; or Jan. 7, 2025, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Saturday.
“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,” according to the agency’s website.
The meals, produced on June 20, July 11 and July 17 of this year, have an establishment number of “EST. P-9” on the side of the package.
The items, which should be tossed out or returned to the point of purchase, were shipped to stores across the country and sold online, the FSIS said.
There were no other reports of an injury or sickness, the agency said, adding that consumers should contact their healthcare provider if they feel sick or hurt.
Earlier this year, Conagra Brands recalled nearly 2.6 million pounds of canned Vienna sausages and chicken products over concerns that packaging issues may have caused contamination.
