Tyson Foods, Inc. Recalls Chicken Nugget Products due to Possible Foreign Matter Contamination

 

The Department of Public Health and Social Services, in coordination with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), would like to inform the public of a recall by Tyson Foods, Inc., a Sedalia, MO food establishment involving 36,420 pounds of “Tyson White Meat Panko Chicken Nuggets” that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically rubber.  The affected products contain the following information:

Brand Name Weight Best if Used By Date Case Code Time Stamp Establishment Number

(located inside the USDA mark of inspection)

Tyson White Meat Panko Chicken Nuggets 5 lb. package NOV 26 2019 3308SDL03 23:00 through 01:59 P-13556

These affected commodities were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

The problem was discovered when Tyson Foods Inc. received consumer complaints of extraneous material in purchased chicken nugget products.  USDA stated that there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.  Due to the concern that affected products may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers, consumers are urged to identify whether any of these items were purchased and to not consume them.  Consumers are strongly advised to either discard the affected products or return them to the place of purchase.

The Division of Environmental Health of this Department is currently conducting a recall effectiveness check with local retail stores and wholesalers to determine if the affected product is being sold or distributed on island.  Currently, there has been no determination that the affected products are available on island.

DEH has not received any local report of injuries or illnesses associated with the consumption of these recalled commodities.  For any questions, consumers may contact Tyson Consumer Relations at 1-888-747-7611 or DEH’s Consumer Commodities Program at 735-7221.
