The Tyson chicken nugget recall was initiated after the company received reports of oral injuries by customers who had consumed its chicken nuggets. The Agriculture Department (USDA) said that small pieces of plastic were found in Tyson’s chicken nuggets and that the plastic was traced to a product scraper inside a blending machine, reports UPI on April 6.
The Tyson chicken nugget recall includes the following packages:
20-lb. bulk packs of Spare Time Fully Cooked Nugget-Shaped Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters with Rib Meat shipped for institutional use in Indiana and Arkansas. The 20-pound bulk packs of nugget-shaped breast patties have identifying case codes of "0264SDL0315 through 19" and "0474SDL0311 through 14."
5-pound bags of Tyson Fully Cooked White Meat Chicken Nuggets with a "best if used by” date of Jan. 26, 2015 or Feb. 16, 2015. These products were shipped nationwide to one retail warehouse club chain and have the manufacturer codes of "0264SDL0315 through 19" and "0474SDL0311 through 14." The establishment number "P-13556" can also be found on the bags.
