If you've got little ones in your life, you definitely need to know that Tyson Foods has initiated a voluntary recall of nearly 30,000 pounds of its dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets after reports of small metal pieces being found in some packages. The recall pertains specifically to the 29-ounce plastic bags of the product officially named "Fully Cooked Fun Nuggets Breaded Shaped Chicken Patties."
Approximately 29,819 pounds of these "Fun Nuggets" are believed to be affected by the recall. The contaminated nuggets were manufactured on September 5, 2023, and distributed across the United States, reaching consumers in Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
While one "minor oral injury" was reported and linked to the contaminated nuggets, no further injuries or illnesses have been reported. In light of the recall, the FSIS urges anyone who may have purchased these "Fun Nuggets" to immediately dispose of them or return them to the place of purchase.
