Tyson recalls chicken nuggets after plastic is found in them.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – Tyson Foods is recalling more than 130,000 pounds of fully cooked chicken nugget products that may be contaminated with hard plastic.

The items in question are the 5-pound bag of “Tyson Fully Cooked Panko Chicken Nuggets” with a best used by date of July 18, 2017, and the 20-pound bulk packages containing “SPARE TIME Fully Cooked, Panko Chicken Nuggets, Nugget-Shaped Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters With Rib Meat” with a production date of July 18, 2016.

The recall comes after Tyson received consumer complaints about foreign material in the nuggets.

Tyson says the plastic may have come from a hard plastic rod used to connect a plastic transfer belt. The company says the products pass through a metal detector but the plastic is not detectable in that technology.

There have been no confirmed reports of anyone hurt by ingesting any of the plastic.

If you think you have some of the recalled Tyson nuggets, the company says to throw them out or return them to the store for a refund. Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Tyson Foods’ Consumer Relations at (866) 328-3156.
