OneMart is assuring customers that it does not have any of the recalled Tyson chicken strips on its shelf. The company made the announcement on 26 March in response to the 21 March recall by Tyson Foods, Inc. of approximately 69,093 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials.
The recall announcement stated that the suspected contaminated chicken may contain pieces of metal. However, as the product was being whisked from shelves around the world OneMart announced to the BVI public that this product is currently not being sold at its supermarket.
In its announcement the company said: “OneMart reaffirms its commitment to serving the community with the best quality products and will make every attempt at all times to keep the health and safety of our customers a priority.”
The recall was announced by the United States’ Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and noted that the recalled items included frozen, ready-to-eat chicken strip items that were produced on November 30, 2018.
The FSIS discovered the problem after receiving two consumer complaints of extraneous material in the chicken strips product. However, it was noted that there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
It was announced that recalled items include 25-oz. plastic bag packages of frozen “Tyson Fully Cooked Buffalo Style Chicken Strips Chicken Breast Strip Fritters With Rib Meat And Buffalo Style Sauce” that has “BEST IF USED BY NOV 30 2019,” written on its package. These packs have case codes 3348CNQ0317 and 3348CNQ0318, and + individual bag time stamps from 17:00 through 18:59 hours (inclusive).
