Tyson Foods recalls 75k pounds of chicken nuggets
SPRINGDALE, Ark. – Tyson Foods, Inc. is voluntarily recalling 75,000 pounds of frozen chicken nuggets after consumers contacted the company, saying they found small pieces of plastic in their food.
Officials said the recall affects 5-pound bags of frozen Tyson white mean chicken nuggets sold at Sam’s Club locations nationwide.
“Though the plastic pieces have been found in a very small number of packages, out of an abundance of caution, the company is recalling 75,320 pounds of product,” according to Tyson.
The products were shipped to Sam’s Club distribution centers all over the country and in Puerto Rico in late January and February.
Tyson officials said if a consumer has a bag of affected product, they should throw it out, cut the UPC and date code from the back of the bag and mail it in for a full refund.
Also being recalled are 40 cases of Spare Time brand fully cooked nugget-shaped chicken breast pattie fritters with rib meat (Item# 16142-861) in 25-pound bulk cases.
