LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Tyson has recalled nearly 11.8 million pounds of frozen chickens strips over concerns that the poultry may be contaminated with metal, food safety officials said Saturday.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, this recall comes shortly after Tyson recalled 69,000 pounds of chicken strips in March.

The agency began an investigation on the chicken after hearing of customer complaints of “extraneous material” and metal fragments found in the chicken.
