Tyson Foods announced Monday that it is voluntarily recalling 75,320 pounds of its frozen whitechicken nuggets due to possible contamination.
Tyson Fully Cooked White Meat Nuggets were sold in 5-pound bags at Sam’s Club locations in the U.S. and Puerto Rico in late January and in February, said a press release issued by the Springdale, Ark., producer. Products sold in smaller bags or at any other retailer are not affected by the recall.
Tyson said it was issuing the recall after receiving consumer reports of finding small pieces of plastic in the nuggets.
According to a press release from the USDA, there have been reports of minor oral injuries.
The recalled product has UPC codes 0-23700-02178-6 or 300-23700-02178-7, with item number 16142-928. The “best if used by” dates of Jan. 26, 2015, or Feb. 16, 2015.
The USDA said the plastic pieces have been traced to a product scraper inside a blending machine.
