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.
