Tyson Recalls Tens of Thousands of Pounds of Chicken Nuggets

Most Americans are familiar with the fun, dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets popularized by food manufacturers like Tyson. However, parents who are currently in possession of said nuggets are being encouraged by the FDA to return them after customers reported finding metal shavings in some packages of the popular food product.

In a Saturday announcement, the FDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced that the 29-ounce packages of both Fully Cooked Fun Nuggets Breaded Shaped Chicken Patties were being recalled.

Almost 30,000 pounds of frozen, shaped chicken is expected to be affected by the recall.

The FSIS traced the contamination back to a September 5th date of production, and the tainted nuggets were apparently shipped to Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The FDA included a list of stores that received the contaminated nuggets on its recall website.

No serious injuries have yet been reported, but customers have reported “minor oral injuries” as a result of having chewed on metal.

Customers still in possession of the nuggets are encouraged to return them to the place of purchase.

A spokesperson from Tyson told NBC News that no other products were apparently affected.

This is the second time in as many months that Tyson has faced public scrutiny.

In late September, it was revealed that the Department of Labor is investigating Tyson for potential child labor violations. At the time, a Department spokesperson confirmed that both Tyson and Perdue were being investigated for potential use of underage migrant labor, particularly in jobs that were physically dangerous.

Tyson did not respond to requests for comment on the investigation, and Missouri Senator Josh Hawley has promised follow up investigations into the company’s labor practices.

    All of that CHEAP Labor that Nancy Pelosi was excited about being in the USA to “pick crops” – no doubt work on her vineyard and I have no doubt that Tyson & Purdue would jump at the chance to pay less than the $15/hr that Biden & Voters demanded. Well, you get what you paid for – now they have undocumented, underage workers and apparently a few kids dropped their Capri Sun or those Energy Drink Cans so they can work 16 hr/day got chopped up with the Chicken By-Products ~ How else can Tyson pay it’s top 6 Executives 38 Million dollars? The last CEO only worked for 18 months for Tyson and got a 6 Million Dollar Parachute. The New CEO is pulling down over 12 Million per year; so they have to cut corners on labor and “fillers” in with the nuggets.

    Anyone that has ever bitten into metal, and it touched a metal cavity – has emotional scars for life. You only do that ONCE. I’m going to bet there is a Lawsuit over Emotional Damages & 50K Dentistry –

    Check your labels as our FDA and USDA has loosened things up even more. Any package where in the ingredient it just reads “Meat BYPRODUCTS” ~ be very afraid. They don’t have to specify what TYPE of meat & scoundrels won’t – – Road Kill, Euthanized Animals, Deceased Animals ALL qualify – Chicken ByProducts CAN include their feet, beaks, ANY part of a chicken – – –

    We need to FIRE 50% of all Govt Agency workers and START at the TOP. It’s going to take a lot of effort, integrity and ethics so that means many of us Baby Boomers should be able to go back to work as Consultants – – – They’d have a hard time hiring anyone under 30 that understands a handshake and your “word” means everything – – Baby Boomers could bring back Values, Morals and Ethics to this Nation.
