Tyson Recalls 30,000 Pounds Of Chicken Nuggets

(AP) – US corporation Tyson Foods is recalling approximately 30,000 pounds of its dino-shaped chicken nuggets after some consumers reported finding small metal pieces inside the product.

According to CNN, the recall, announced on Saturday, is for 29-ounce plastic bag packages containing frozen, “fully cooked fun nuggets breaded shaped chicken patties.”

The products reportedly have a “best if used by date” of September 4, 2024, and were sold in Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

CNN also reports that there has been “one minor oral injury” associated with consumption of the nuggets, according to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

No other reports of harm have been reported so far.

Officials at the USDA said they were concerned consumers may still have bags of the recalled product, and advised that it should be discarded or returned immediately.

Tyson, an Arkansas-based company, is the world’s second-largest meat processor.
