15 Tons of Chicken Nuggets In The US Contaminated With Metal Pieces

(HorizonPost.com) – Tyson Foods on Saturday announced a voluntary recall of around 30,000 pounds of its dinosaur-shaped Fun Nuggets chicken after customers reported finding small, “pliable” pieces of metal, CNN reported.

The recall is for the 29-ounce plastic bag packages of “fully cooked fun nuggets breaded shaped chicken patties,” according to the notice from the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. The affected packages feature a best-used-by date of September 4, 2024, and were sold in stores located in Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

According to the USDA, there has been one reported “minor oral injury” from consuming the fun nuggets. No other injuries have been reported thus far.

Officials from the Food Safety and Inspection Service said there is a concern that some consumers could still have bags of the recalled nuggets in their freezers. The agency is advising anyone to check the package for the best-used-by date and either discard the product or return it to the store immediately.

The Arkansas-based Tyson Foods is the second-largest meat processor in the world.

The company is advising customers with packages of the recalled nuggets to remove the UPC and date code from the package and call or text (855) 382-3101.
