For many toddlers, the words “chicken nuggets” are sometimes more popular than “mama” or “dada,” but a recent voluntary recall of Tyson Foods chicken nuggets means your kids will need to find a temporary substitute.
Tyson Foods voluntarily recalled over 30,000 pounds of its dino-shaped chicken nuggets on Saturday. The move came after some consumers reported finding metal in the food.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, “there has been one reported minor oral injury associated with consumption of this product.”
Specifically, the recall is for 9-oz. Plastic bag packages containing “Tyson FULLY COOKED FUN NUGGETS BREADED SHAPED CHICKEN PATTIES” with a Best If Used By date of SEP 04, 2024. Lot codes for the product are 2483BRV0207, 2483BRV0208, 2483BRV0209 and 2483BRV0210.
