Tyson Foods is recalling approximately 29,819 pounds of chicken nuggets that may be contaminated with pieces of metal.
The Arkansas-based brand announced the recall via the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) Saturday, alerting consumers that the product “may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal pieces.”
The recall applies to 29-oz. plastic bag packages containing “Tyson Fully Cooked Fun Nuggets Breaded Shaped Chicken Patties” produced on September 5, 2023. Impacted products have a “Best If Used By” date of September 4, 2024, establishment number “P-7211” located on the back of the package and lot codes 2483BRV0207, 2483BRV0208, 2483BRV0209 and 2483BRV0210.
The product subject to recall was shipped to distributors in Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin for “further distribution to the retail level.”
According to a news release, the problem was discovered after Tyson notified FSIS that it had received consumer complaints about small metal pieces in the chicken patty product. So far there has been one reported “minor oral injury” associated with consumption of this product. No deaths or major injuries have been reported.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to eat them. Instead, cut the UPC and date code from the packaging, discard the product, and call or text 1-855-382-3101.
