Tyson Foods, Inc. announced today a voluntary recall of 5-pound bags of Tyson® Fully Cooked Panko Chicken Nuggets that were sold at Costco locations nationwide and a small number of 20-pound cases of bulk Spare Time brand cooked nugget-shaped chicken breast pattie fritters with rib meat that were sold to a single wholesaler in Pennsylvania.
A small number of consumers contacted the company to say they had found small pieces of hard, white plastic in the nuggets, prompting the company to issue the recall. Though the plastic pieces have been found in a very small number of packages, out of an abundance of caution, the company is recalling 132,520 pounds of product. No injuries have been reported with this recall. Products sold in smaller packages or at any other retailer are not affected by this recall.
For 5-pound bags of Tyson® Fully Cooked Panko Chicken Nuggets purchased at Costco since July 2016, the recall includes:
Item # 23575-928
Lots feature “best if used by” dates of July 18, 2017 with case codes 2006SDL03 or 2006SDL33
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-13556” printed adjacent to the “Best If Used By” date on the back of the package. The cases of bulk Spare Time patties (Item# 23575-861) have the same “use by” dates listed above.
