Tyson Chicken Nugget Recall

The company, Tyson Foods, has issued a recall for more than 130,000 pounds of chicken nugget products. The recall has been issued because the chicken nugget products potentially contain hard plastic. The USDA found on Tuesday the evidence of plastic contamination within the nuggets.

The chicken nugget products that may contain plastic were sold at Costco locations throughout the country. Only the chicken nugget products that were sold at Costco are affected by this recall.

The items affected by this recall are:

  • 5 lb packages of "Tyson Fully Cooked Panko Chicken Nuggets" that have a "Best If Used By Date" of July 18, 2017 that were sold at Costco
  • 20 lb packages of "Spare Time Fully Cooked, Panko Chicken Nuggets, Nugget Shaped Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters With Rib Meat with a production date of July 18, 2016

Tyson Foods has stated that the plastic material found within the nuggets may have come from a plastic rod that was used on a transfer belt. According to Tyson Foods, their products go through a metal detector, but the detector cannot detect the plastic.

If you have purchased these products, you should not eat them. The products should be returned to the place of purchase or thrown away.  Before discarding the chicken nugget products, you should cut the UPC label and date code from the package and mail it to Tyson Foods. A full refund will be provided.
