Tyson Chicken Nuggets Recalled for Possibly Containing Rubber

January 31, 2019


Tyson Foods is recalling more than 36,000 pounds of CHICKEN NUGGETS that MAY be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically RUBBER. 

According to the USDA, the Panko (or breadcrumbs) frozen chicken nuggets were made on November 26th of last year and HERE is the Package to watch out for:

  • 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

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “P-13556” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

The problem was discovered when they received consumer complaints of the material in their food and the USDA was told on Jan. 29, 2019.

There have been NO confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products, but anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

The Food Safety and Inspection Service of the US Department of Agriculture is concerned that some product may be frozen and in customers’ freezers.

Obviously, consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them, and rather they are encouraged to throw them away or return to the place of purchase.

When available, a list of recalled items will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Tyson Consumer Relations at 1-888-747-7611.
