USDA Issues Mass Recall Of Frozen Chicken

According to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), Conagra Brands recalled about 245,000 pounds of frozen chicken strips. The products in question may include small pieces of plastic.

The potentially dangerous chicken strips were produced on June 20, July 11, and July 17, 2023, according to the FSIS website. Best If Used By December 11, 2024, January 01, 2025, and January 07, 2025, may be found on the recalled 8.9-ounce “Banquet Chicken Strips Meal” cartons.

Three different lot numbers are written on the sides of these cartons: 5009317120, 5009319220, and 5009319820.

The recalled chicken strips meals were sold at stores nationwide and on many e-commerce websites.

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said online that the issue was found when Conagra Foods told FSIS that it received a customer complaint of plastic in the chicken strip part of the product.

The agency adds that it hasn’t received any further complaints of customers becoming hurt or sick after ingesting the possibly impacted food.

Anyone who believes they may have purchased frozen chicken strips under the Banquet brand is urged by the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) to check their freezers to determine whether the “Best whether Used By” dates and lot numbers match those involved in the recall.

According to, “recalls are highly precise,” which means that all of the information written on a product must match the information displayed on the recalled goods; otherwise, those things have not been recalled and would be safe to eat.

You may either request a refund from the store where you purchased the recalled item or dispose of it safely if you find it in your freezer.

Customers with questions about the recall should email [email protected] or call (800) 921-7404 to speak with a representative from Conagra Brands. Conagra Brands may be reached by consumers of banquets who have concerns concerning the recall.
