Tyson Issues Recall on Chicken Nuggets


By Alabama News Network

Tyson is recalling over 75,000 pounds of chicken nuggets.

This, after some customers reported finding small pieces of plastic in their food. The recall includes five-pound bags of frozen, white meat chicken nuggets sold at Sam's Club stores across the country. 

The recall also includes 20-pound bulk packs of nugget-shaped breast patties that were shipped for institutional use in indiana and arkansas. 

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the problem was traced to a product scraper inside a blending machine.

The company says complaints of plastic pieces in the nuggets were received by a "small number of customers."
