Tyson Chicken Nuggets Recalled
Another food recall has been made, this time by Tyson Foods.
Tyson has voluntarily recalled over 130,000 pounds of cooked chicken nuggets because they may contain hard plastic.
The US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety Inspection Service made the announcement on Tuesday that said
According to Tyson Foods, the plastic material ranged in size from 21mm in length and 6.5mm in diameter and may have come from a round, hard plastic rod used to connect a plastic transfer belt. The firm said the products pass through a metal detector, but the plastic is not detectable to this technology."
The recall applies to 5-pound bags of fully cooked panko chicken nuggets with a "use by" date of July 18, 2017. They also have case code 2006SDL03 and 2006SDL33 on the package.
The USDA advises anyone who may have purchased these nuggets to either throw them away or return them to the store where they were purchased. They should NOT be eaten.
The recall was issued after a customer found "foreign material" in a nugget, but to date no injuries have been reported.
