Tyson Foods, Inc. has ordered the recall of 2 of their popular chicken nugget lines. The reason for the recall is due to possible contamination by foreign matter.

This recall affects approximately 75,320 pounds of the fully-cooked, frozen chicken nuggets, according to the U. S. Department of Agriculture.

The products that are being recalled are:

* 5-lb. bags of "Tyson Fully Cooked White Meat Chicken Nuggets - 16142-928" with a Best Used By date of Jan. 26, 2015 or Feb. 16, 2015. These bags were shipped nationwide for sale one warehouse retail club chain.

The product bags also have the establishment number P-13556 printed on them.

Tyson became aware of the problem when they started to receive consumer complaints about small pieces of plastic in their nuggets. The company said the problem was traced to a plastic scrapper that was inside of one of the blending machines.

No major injuries were reported, but there were a couple of incidences of minor oral injuries related to the plastic. If you have any concerns about injury or illness related to this recall you are encouraged to contact the company.
