Consumer Update: Tyson Chicken Nugget Recall Announced

[profileleft]Chicken Nugget Recall[/profileleft]Anyone who has children likely considers chicken nuggets one of the staples of their diets.  They are a source of protein and for the most part, kids like them.  As such, when something goes wrong with chicken nuggets on a massive scale it could lead to serious problems for families all over the United States.  Tyson Foods has announced a chicken nugget recall that affects an enormous amount of food.  Fortunately, it does not appear that anyone has been injured as a result of this problem.  Consumers need to be aware of this issue and should remove any product that could be dangerous for consumption.  The details of the recall appear below.

Details of the Chicken Nugget Recall

The United States Department of Agriculture, or USDA, recently put out a press release that provides the details of the chicken nugget recall.  Those interested in reading it in full can find it here.  The recall affects more than 132,000 pounds of chicken nuggets.  Two specific products were recalled, and the USDA press release describes them as follows:

  • 5-lb. bag containing “Tyson FULLY COOKED PANKO CHICKEN NUGGETS” with a “Best If Used By” date of July 18, 2017 and case code 2006SDL03 and 2006SDL33.
  • 20-lb. bulk packages containing “SPARE TIME Fully Cooked, Panko Chicken Nuggets, Nugget Shaped Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters With Rib Meat” with a production date of July 18, 2016 and case code 2006SDL03.

Those affected bags of chicken nuggets have an establishment number of “EST. 13556” that appears next to the “Best If Used By” date.  Consumers can find a link to a label from one of these bags here.  The 20-pound bags were manufactured and shipped for institutional use in Pennsylvania.  The majority of recalled bags were of the 5-pound variety.  They were shipped to Costco outlets across the country and are more likely to reach consumers.

The reason for the chicken nugget recall is that Tyson Foods began receiving complaints regarding foreign materials in the food.  An investigation revealed that a plastic rod may have broken apart during the manufacturing process.  As a result shards of plastic found their way into the chicken nuggets.  Tyson Foods stated that these plastic pieces range in size from 6 millimeters to 21 millimeters.  These chicken nuggets made it to the market because the metal detectors used by Tyson Foods did not detect the presence of plastic.

The Chicken Nugget Recall – What To Do Now

Clearly, consumers should discard any bags of chicken nuggets that are involved with this recall.  There is an obvious danger of serious injury or worse if they are eaten.  Consumers can also return them to the store where they were purchased.  People who have eaten these nuggets may want to consider a medical checkup if for no other reason than to make sure that they are not at risk of any harm.
