Burger King chicken tenders removed from menu, failure to meet safety specs

Burger King’s crown shaped chicken tenders were pulled from many of its restaurants nationwide after the fast food giant decided the quality of the product was too poor to serve.

The company was quoted as saying,

"Food safety at Burger King restaurants is non-negotiable. (Burger King) was notified by one of its suppliers that the chicken tenders product produced between May 10-20, 2010 may not meet the company’s stringent food safety specifications."

No customers have been sickened.
