Tyson Foods recalls almost 30,000 pounds of dinosaur-shaped chicken Fun nuggets Due to metal pieces in them

by ranyeen

Tyson Foods has issued a recall for approximately 30,000 pounds (13,600 kg) of chicken nuggets known as ‘Fun Nuggets’ due to consumer reports of metal pieces found in these dinosaur-shaped nuggets.

The recall pertains exclusively to Tyson Foods’ 29-ounce packets of “Fully Cooked Fun Nuggets Breaded Shaped Chicken Patties” produced on September 5, 2023.

In an abundance of caution, the company voluntarily recalled the product after a limited number of consumers reported discovering small, pliable metal pieces within it.

Does the Recall affect all the Tyson Products ?

The recall does not affect any other Tyson brand products, and Tyson Foods has alerted the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) regarding this action.

While the FSIS noted only one minor oral injury linked to the consumption of this product, numerous consumers reported finding small metal pieces in their nuggets, with one incident resulting in a minor oral injury.

The affected nuggets were distributed in 29-ounce bags with a “best if used by” date of Sept. 4, 2024, and bearing lot codes 2483BRV0207, 2483BRV0208, 2483BRV0209, and 2483BRV0210. The product’s packaging showcases cartoon dinosaurs, one green and one red, overlooking a plate of breaded nuggets.

To which States these Chicken Nuggets were Distributed ?

These recalled nuggets were shipped to distributors in several states, including Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin, for further distribution to retailers.

If consumers have these affected nuggets in their freezers, they are advised to either dispose of them or return them to the place of purchase.
