Bad news for chicken nugget lovers – Tyson has recalled one of its chicken products due to contamination concerns.
The recall affects Tyson’s panko-breaded nuggets packed in 5 lb. bags.
The company said a small number of consumers found tiny pieces of soft blue plastics in their chicken.
The United States Department of Agriculture confirmed the product does contain “extraneous” material, specifically rubber.
Tyson has said there are no reports of illness or injury, and so far the problem does not appear to be widespread. However, out of an abudance of caution, the company has recalled more than 36,000 lbs. of the product as of Wednesday morning.
