Florida meat lovers beware:  this isn’t an early Halloween prank.  You could injure yourself quite unexpectedly when you take a bite out of chicken strips or sausage you bought at the super market. These popular meat products were recalled because they might actually contain bones or pieces of plastic.

The U.S. Agriculture Department says more than 245,000 pounds of Banquet frozen chicken strips entrees have been recalled because they might contain plastic.  If you thought you were buying whole pieces of chicken breasts, this pretty much shatters that myth!

At the same time, the Agriculture Department also announced the recall of nearly 15,000 pounds of Hillshire Farm sausage.  In this case, we’ve graduated from pieces of plastic to bits of bone!

Injuries have been minimal, but severe enough to prompt the recalls.

Conagra Brands Inc., owner of Banquet Foods that produces the chicken strips, notified food safety inspectors that they had received a complaint from somebody who injured their mouth eating the chicken strips.  In their recall announcement, the company said their frozen chicken strips entrees “may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically piece of plastic.”  If you have some of these Banquet brand chicken strip entrees in your freezer, you can check here for the affected lot numbers and production dates.

Here’s what you need to know about the sausage recall.  It’s affecting Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausage made with pork, turkey and beef.  One person reported a mouth injury while eating it, and others complained to both Hillshire Brands, Inc, and the Food Safety Inspection Service of bone found in the sausage  Click here for more information.
