Tyson Recalls Chicken Nuggets
(Memphis) Tyson Foods is recalling more than 75,000 pounds of frozen chicken nuggets due to possible contamination.
The company got consumer complaints about small pieces of plastic being found in the products. Tyson officials then traced the problem back to a product scraper inside a blending machine.
The following products are being recalled:
• 5-lb. bags of “Tyson Fully Cooked White Meat Chicken Nuggets – 16142-928” with a “Best if Used By” date of “Jan 26 2015” or Feb 16 2015.”
• 20-lb. bulk packs of “Spare Time Fully Cooked Nugget-Shaped Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters w/Rib Meat – 16142-861”
The product bags bear the establishment number “P-13556″ and were only sold at Sam’s Club stores.
Consumers can contact Tyson Foods at (866) 328-3156.
