Tyson Issues Massive Recall on 36,000+ Pounds of Chicken Nuggets That May Contain Rubber

Chicken nuggets are a common food item found in many American households — especially those with children.

If this sounds like a close description of your home, you’ll want to head to your freezer and check your packages for a specific brand and date.

The USDA released a statement on Jan. 29 regarding Tyson White Meat Panko Chicken Nuggets produced on Nov. 26, 2018.

Consumers will need to specifically check the details on their 5-lb. plastic packages for a “‘Best if Used By’ date of November 26, 2019, case code of 3308SDL03, and time stamps 23:00 through 01:59 (inclusive).”

Approximately 36,420 pounds of this product are being recalled by Tyson Foods Inc. due to the nuggets possibly containing rubber and other “extraneous materials.”

Do you use either of these chicken nugget brands?
The recall is listed as Class I with a high health risk warning. “This is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death,” the USDA’s classification reads.

This isn’t the only nugget product being recalled, either. According to USA Today, two recalls of nuggets produced by Perdue Foods have been issued within the past two weeks.

According to the report, the first recall was for 68,244 pounds of chicken nugget products that may contain wood.

The most recent recall for over 16,000 pounds of nuggets has to do with “misbranding and undeclared allergens.”

The statement issued by USDA also lists this recall as Class I, high risk. Consumers will need to check their freezers for “10-lb. boxes containing two 5 lb. plastic bags with the box labeled ‘Chef Redi Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritter, RTC — Large’ with the case code of 7374.”

For more information on the first Perdue Foods recall, the Jan. 17 recall statement can be found on the USDA’s website.
