Recall: Tyson chicken nuggets may have rubber in them

The USDA has announced a product recall.

Got any Tyson chicken nuggets in your freezer? You might want to check the label.

That's because the food manufacturer, via the USDA, has announced it's recalling 36,420 pounds of its chicken nuggets because they may be contaminated with "extraneous materials" – namely rubber.

The panko-coated chicken nuggets were produced on Nov. 26, 2018, and have use-by dates of Nov. 26, 2019.

Here's the specific product that's been recalled: 

  • 5-lb. plastic packages of “Tyson WHITE MEAT PANKO CHICKEN NUGGETS” with a “BEST IF USED BY” date of “NOV 26 2019,” case code “3308SDL03” and time stamps 23:00 through 01:59.

So far, nobody has fallen ill or had any adverse reactions from consuming the nuggets, though anyone concerned about illness or an injury should call a doctor.

Anyone who still has these nuggets in their freezer shouldn't eat them. Instead they should be thrown away or returned to where they were bought.
