About 441,000 Banquet TV dinners got recalled. The chicken might have plastic

Nobody expects the frozen meals once called “TV dinners” to be the height of healthy eating, but nobody expects plastic in the entree, either. That’s why ConAgra Brands recalled about 245,366 pounds — or 441,107 8.9-ounce boxes — of Banquet Chicken Strips Meal.

And, the food colossus found out about the plastic the hard way: from a customer who found out the hard way.

The USDA-Food Safety Inspection Service recall notice says ConAgra “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.”
