Tyson Recalls 30,000 Pounds of Chicken

(ConservativeJournal.org) – The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has issued a recall on Sunday for approximately 30,000 pounds of chicken nuggets that might be contaminated with metal.

The recalled products are mainly Tyson Foods’ 2-pound plastic bag packages, containing frozen, fun nuggets that are fully cooked. USDA also recalled the fully cooked chicken patties with a “best by” date of September 4, 2024. They were distributed to Illinois, Alabama, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Virginia.

The USDA reported a minor oral injury associated with the chicken nuggets. They expressed concerns that some customers might still have these dinosaur nuggets in their freezers. Tyson Foods, in its recall notice, said the metal pieces were small and hard to find. company decided to recall the product as a precautionary measure.

This isn’t the first time Tyson has faced such issues. In 2019, Tyson had a similar recall of chicken nuggets due to potential rubber contamination. Rubber particles had entered the chicken after a piece of production equipment broke, according to the company. In 2014, Tyson recalled more than 74,000 pounds of frozen chicken nuggets following consumer complaints of small plastic pieces in the product. Although there has only been one reported mouth injury associated with consuming these nuggets, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is concerned that some customers are still in possession of these products. They are also concerned that any of those nuggets or patties that are remaining will be consumed by customers, causing more injury.

Tyson recommends that consumers who bought the affected item should remove the UPC and code for the date from the packaging, discard the product, and contact them at their support line (which can be found on their website) through a call or text. The USDA advises those who still have these products to dispose of them or return them to the place of purchase.
