Tyson Foods Recalls 75,000 Pounds of Chicken Nuggets

The product was recalled because of "foreign matter" contamination.

Tyson Foods of Sedalia, Mo. has recalled 75,320 pounds of chicken nuggets due to the presence of an unknown extraneous material that may have contaminated the products, according to a press release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

According to USDA, the problem was discovered after the company received consumer complaints that small pieces of plastic were found in the nuggets. "The problem was traced to a product scraper inside a blending machine," USDA reported, adding that the company has received reports of minor injuries associated with consumption of these products.

The recall involved frozen, fully cooked nuggets, specifically:

  • Five-pound 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."
