Tyson Chicken Nugget Recall
We expect the items we buy to be safe for our use and consumption. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, and sometimes the products we buy pose potential hazards to our health and/or safety. Oftentimes when a manufacturer of a product discovers a defect or safety hazard with the product, they issue a recall for the product. Recently, there has been a string of recalls for chicken nuggets. The latest company to recall some of their chicken nuggets is Tyson.
The recall comes after concerns that the certain types of Tyson chicken nuggets may be contaminated with rubber. According to the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service over 36,000 pounds of chicken nuggets are affected by this recall. The nuggets included in the recall have a “best if used by” date of November 26, 2019. They also have a case code stamp which reads “3308SDL03” and time stamps which say “23:00 through 1:59 (inclusive).” The items have been shipped and sold nationwide.
The recall was commenced after Tyson received various reports from consumers of extraneous material in the chicken nuggets. The company states that it has not received any reports of adverse reactions or illness from consumption of the contaminated nuggets.
People who have purchased Tyson chicken nuggets are urged to check their freezers to ensure that they do not have any packs of the potentially contaminated nuggets. If you have a pack of the nuggets, you are encouraged to throw them away and not eat them because of the potential for contamination.
