Check your freezers.
Tyson Foods has just recalled many of their frozen bags of chicken nuggets according to a recent press release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
While pulling almost 30,000 pounds of their chicken nuggets from freezer shelves, Tyson says they voluntarily did after some people reported of finding small pieces of metal inside of the chicken patties.
More specifically, the current recall focuses on Tyson’s 29-ounce frozen, (but fully cooked) bags of their dinosaur chicken nuggets with a “Best Used By date of September 4, 2024” printed on the bag.
The recalled chicken was sold in the following states including California, Illinois, Michigan, Tennessee, and Virginia, with only “one minor oral injury” associated with the recall according to the USDA.
So if you were planning on reaching for the frozen bag of chicken nuggets in the freezer for dinner, it looks like Domino’s Emergency Pizza will come in handy tonight.
