recall alert

It’s recalls like this that really make you question the safety and quality of the food we are being given by big name companies. On Saturday, November 5, a massive recall was issued by Tyson Foods for approximately 30,000 pounds of its dino-shaped chicken nugget products due to reports of small metal pieces being found in patties.

The products affected were distributed in several states including Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin. It is essential that purchasers and consumers follow specific instructions provided by Tyson Foods to ensure their safety.

The recall pertains to 29-ounce plastic bag packages containing frozen “fully cooked fun nuggets breaded shaped chicken patties” featuring a “best if used by date” of September 4th 2024.

The statement reads:

“The problem was discovered after the firm notified FSIS that it had received consumer complaints reporting small metal pieces in the chicken patty product…There has been one reported minor oral injury associated with consumption of this product. FSIS has received no additional reports of injury or illness from consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.”

The U.S Department Of Agriculture’s Food Safety And Inspection Service expressed concern that consumers may still have the recalled “fun nuggets” in their freezers and strongly advised anyone in possession of these products to promptly discard or return them. Tyson Foods has also provided specific guidance for purchasers and consumers recommending that they cut the UPC and date code from the packaging and contact Tyson at 1-855-382-3101 for further instructions.

It is essential that those who may have purchased this product act swiftly to ensure their safety by following instructions given by both Tyson Foods as well as the USDA’s FSIS department. If you suspect that you may have purchased an affected product please contact Tyson immediately or discard it entirely to avoid any potential harm.
