Tons Of Chicken Nuggets Recalled Over Rubber Bits

Yahoo News reports:

Just months after recalling frozen breaded chicken tenderloins over fears they were contaminated with plastic last June, Tyson has issued an alert over its chicken nuggets.

A statement issued by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service says that 36,420 pounds of the food company’s chicken nuggets may have been contaminated with rubber, resulting in a recall.

The recall of Tyson White Meat Panko Chicken Nuggets — with packages listing a “best if used by” date of Nov. 26, 2019 — was prompted after customers complained of “extraneous material,” i.e. the rubber. No adverse health reactions have been confirmed, though the health risk is listed as “high.”
