Plastic particles in chicken prompt Tyson recall

WASHINGTON (WVUE) - Tyson Foods is recalling 75,320 pounds of frozen, fully cooked chicken nugget products that may be contaminated with plastic, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

    The following products are being recalled:

•    5-lb. bags of "Tyson Fully Cooked White Meat Chicken Nuggets – 16142-928" with a best-if-used-by date of Jan. 26, 2015 or Feb. 16, 2015. The manufacturer codes 0264SDL0315 through 19 and 0474SDL0311 through 14 can also be found on the bags. These products were produced Jan. 26, 2014 or Feb. 16, 2014 and shipped nationwide to one retail warehouse club chain.  
•    20-lb. bulk packs of "Spare Time Fully Cooked Nugget-Shaped Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters w/Rib Meat – 16142-861" with identifying case codes of 0264SDL0315 through 19 and 0474SDL0311 through 14. These products were produced Jan. 26 and Feb. 16, 2014, and were shipped for institutional use in Indiana and Arkansas.               

The product bags bear the establishment number P-13556.

The problem was discovered after Tyson received consumer complaints that small pieces of plastic were found in the products. The problem was traced to a product scraper inside a blending machine.

The company has received reports of minor mouth injuries.       

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Tyson Foods Consumer Services at (866) 328-3156.
