Tyson Foods is recalling approximately 36,420 pounds of chicken nugget products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically rubber, according to a release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The Panko chicken nugget items were produced on Nov. 26, 2018, at the Tyson Foods facility in Sedalia, Mo.
The 5-pound plastic packages have a use-by date of November 26, 2019, and a case code “3308SDL03” on the label. They also have an establishment number “P-13556” inside the USDA mark of inspection, according to the release. The products were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
USDA said the problem was discovered when the company received consumer complaints of extraneous material in the products. The FSIS was notified Jan. 29. The release said there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider, the release said.
FSIS said there is a concern that some products may be frozen in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased the products are urged not to eat them, as they should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
