Tyson Foods Recalling some Chicken Nugget Products

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WOWO): Tyson Foods is recalling approximately 75,320 pounds of frozen, fully cooked chicken nugget products due to possible foreign matter contamination. 

The problem was discovered after the company received complaints that small pieces of plastic were found in the products. The issue was traced back to a scraper inside a blending machine.

The following products are subject to the USDA recall:

•    5-lb. bags of “Tyson Fully Cooked White Meat Chicken Nuggets – 16142-928” with a “Best if Used By” date of “Jan 26 2015” or Feb 16 2015.” The manufacturer codes “0264SDL0315 through 19” and “0474SDL0311 through 14” can also be found on the bags. These products were produced Jan. 26, 2014 or Feb. 16, 2014 and shipped nationwide to one retail warehouse club chain. 

•    20-lb. bulk packs of “Spare Time Fully Cooked Nugget-Shaped Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters w/Rib Meat – 16142-861” with identifying case codes of “0264SDL0315 through 19” and “0474SDL0311 through 14.”

The product bags bear the establishment number “P-13556.” These products were produced January 26 and February 16, 2014 and were shipped for use in Indiana and Arkansas. The company has received reports of minor oral injury associated with consumption of these products.
