Tyson Foods, a US-based company, is recalling approximately 13,608 kilograms of chicken nuggets, known as ‘Fun Nuggets,’ after some consumers found metal pieces in the product. The recall was initiated by Tyson Foods as a precautionary measure to ensure consumer safety. No other Tyson brand products are affected by this recall.
The nuggets with a “best if used by date” of September 4, 2024, were sold in select US states, including Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
A small number of consumers reported discovering pliable metal pieces in the product, which prompted the company to take this action. The recall was announced on November 4, and Tyson Foods is working closely with the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
It’s important to note that there has been only one reported incident of a minor oral injury associated with the consumption of this product, as confirmed by the USDA.
If you have these Tyson Fun Nuggets in your freezer, it is strongly advised to either discard them or return them to the place of purchase. Ensuring the safety of consumers is a top priority for Tyson Foods.
In the past, Tyson Foods has faced recalls due to product quality issues. This recall serves as a proactive measure to prevent any potential health risks associated with consuming their products.
