Tyson Recalls Chicken Nuggets Due to Rubber Contamination
Tyson Foods has announced a voluntary recall of 5-pound bags of Tyson®Fully Cooked Panko Chicken Nuggets that were sold nationwide because some bags have rubber in them.
According to their website announcement:
A small number of consumers contacted the company to say they had found small pieces of soft, blue rubber in the nuggets, prompting the company to issue the recall. Though the pieces have been found in a very small number of packages, no injuries have been reported with this recall; however, out of an abundance of caution, the company is recalling 36,420 pounds of product.
The recall includes 5-pound bags of Tyson® Fully Cooked Panko Chicken Nuggets purchased since November 26, 2018, with the following information:
