Tyson Foods recalls chicken nugget products

Tyson issues recall after some consumers complained of small pieces of plastic in product

Tyson Foods is recalling approximately 75,320 pounds of frozen, fully cooked chicken nugget products produced at Tyson Foods' plant in Sedalia, Mo. The Tyson Foods recall was made after some consumers reported finding pieces of plastic in the chicken nuggets.

The Tyson Foods chicken nugget products subject to recall are:

  • 5-lb. 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." The manufacturer codes "0264SDL0315 through 19" and "0474SDL0311 through 14" can also be found on the bags. The product was sold at Sam's Clubs.
  • 20-lb. bulk packs of "Spare Time Fully Cooked Nugget-Shaped Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters w/Rib Meat - 16142-861" with identifying case codes of "0264SDL0315 through 19" and "0474SDL0311 through 14." These products were produced Jan. 26 and Feb. 16, and were shipped for institutional use in Indiana and Arkansas. The product bags bear the establishment number "P-13556."

Similar chicken nuggets in smaller packages are not affected by the recall.

The company has received reports of minor oral injury associated with consumption of these products. The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has received no additional reports of injury or illness from consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness from consumption of these products should contact a healthcare provider.        

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms notify their   customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
