66 Tons of Tyson Chicken Nuggets Recalled
Tyson Foods Inc. says it's voluntarily recalling more than 132,000 pounds of chicken nuggets after receiving reports that "hard, white plastic" was found in some nuggets.
The company said the 5-pound bags of fully cooked chicken nuggets were sold at Costco stores nationwide. They carry the "use by" date of July 18, 2017. They also have case code 2006SDL03 and 2006SDL33 on the package.
Customers may return affected packages to point of purchase for refund.
Tyson says "a small number" of consumers contacted the company after finding small pieces of plastic in the chicken. Tyson says it's issuing the recall "out of an abundance of caution" even though it's only received a small number of reports of plastic.
No injuries have been reported.
