Sioux Falls, SD (KELO AM) - Tyson has announced a recall of chicken nuggets due to small plastic pieces in their food.
The recall is for more than 72,000 pounds of white meat chicken nuggets sold in 5-pound bags sold at Sam’s Club stores nation-wide.
Tyson and the USDA say the 5-pound chicken nuggets bags have manufacturer codes of "0264SDL0315 through 19" and "0474SDL0311 through 14." The establishment number "P-13556" can also be found on the bags. The nuggets were produced on January 26 and February 16.
The problem was traced back to a product scraper inside a blending machine.
There have been reports of minor oral injury from the plastic.
