Another day, another recall.
First, it was Perdue Foods’ frozen chicken nuggets, and now it’s Tyson Foods’ chicken nuggets. According to the USDA, more than 36,000 pounds of Tyson chicken nuggets have been recalled across the country, including in Colorado, due to possible contamination of rubber.
This was discovered when Tyson received multiple complaints from customers about “extraneous material” in the Panko chicken nugget products.
The USDA says that the nuggets affected by the recall include the five-pound plastic packages of “Tyson White Meat Panko Chicken Nuggets” with a best-by-date of Nov. 26, 2019, case code 3308SDL03 and time stamps from 23:00 through 01:59, as well as the number P-13556 inside the USDA mark of inspection.

“There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider,” states the USDA.
The FSIS states that anyone who has purchased these products should either throw them away or return them to the place of purchase. The recalled products may also be in freezers.
