TWIN TIERS (WENY) -- Tyson Foods are recalling their chicken nuggets saying they've been contaminated with foreign materials.
According to foodsafetynews.com the company is recalling about 75,000 pounds of frozen, fully cooked chicken nugget products.
The following products are subject to USDA recall:
•5-lb. bags of "Tyson Fully Cooked White Meat Chicken Nuggets - 16142-928" with a "Best if Used By" date of "Jan 26 2015" or Feb 16 2015." The manufacturer codes "0264SDL0315 through 19" and "0474SDL0311 through 14" can also be found on the bags. These products were produced Jan. 26, 2014, or Feb. 16, 2014, and shipped nationwide to Sam's Clubs.
•20-lb. bulk packs of "Spare Time Fully Cooked Nugget-Shaped Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters w/Rib Meat - 16142-861" with identifying case codes of "0264SDL0315 through 19" and "0474SDL0311 through 14." These products were produced Jan. 26 and Feb. 16, 2014, and were shipped for institutional use in Indiana and to a Tyson Foods company store in Arkansas.
The product bags bear the establishment number "P-13556."
The problem was discovered after the firm received consumer complaints that small pieces of plastic were found in the products. The problem was traced to a product scraper inside a blending machine.
