Tyson Foods Recalls 130,000 Pounds of Chicken Nuggets

Tyson Foods Inc. announced a voluntary recall of 5-lb bags of Tyson Fully Cooked Panko Chicken Nuggets that were sold at Costco locations nationwide and a small number of 20-lb cases of bulk Spare Time brand cooked nugget-shaped chicken breast pattie fritters with rib meat that were sold to a single wholesaler in Pennsylvania.

A number of consumers contacted the company to say they had found small pieces of hard, white plastic in the nuggets, prompting the company to issue the recall. Though the plastic pieces have been found in a small number of packages, out of an abundance of caution, the company is recalling 132,520 pounds of product. No injuries have been reported with this recall. Products sold in smaller packages or at any other retailer are not affected by this recall.   

For 5-lb bags of Tyson Fully Cooked Panko Chicken Nuggets purchased at Costco since July 2016, the recall includes:

UPC: 0-237000-3558-5

Item #23575-928

Lots feature “best if used by” dates of July 18, 2017 with case codes 2006SDL03 or 2006SDL33

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-13556” printed adjacent to the “Best If Used By” date on the back of the package. The cases of bulk Spare Time patties (Item# 23575-861) have the same “use by” dates listed above.

Tyson Foods has inspected all lines at the production facility to ensure product quality standards are being met and has implemented corrective measures at all of its facilities to prevent similar occurrences.
