Heads Up New York Parents! Metal Found in Chicken Nuggets
A heads up for parents after Tyson Foods, one of the largest American food producers, has issued a recall of 30,000 pounds of frozen chicken nuggets.
The recall was a voluntary move by the company after consumers reported finding small pieces of metal inside the breaded, fully cooked dinosaur-shaped nuggets. The packages, weighing 29 ounces and with a Best Used By date of September 4th, 2024, were sold in several states.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced the recall after one minor oral injury was reported in connection with the consumption of the affected products. Consumers have been advised not to consume the recalled product, and those who may have already consumed the product can contact Tyson Foods or their local healthcare provider if they experience any adverse effects.
The food production industry is heavily regulated, and the USDA-initiated investigation is ongoing. The company has not released any information about the potential reason for metal contamination in its products.
Tyson Foods' decision to issue the voluntary recall shows its commitment to the safety of consumers and its willingness to take responsibility for any negative effects that could result from the product it puts on the market.
Consumers can check the package of frozen chicken nuggets to see if any action needs to be taken. Tyson Foods suggests that customers check their homes to see if they have any of the recalled packages, which include the establishment number EST-P-037 inside the USDA mark of inspection.
For more information, you can visit the USDA website for updates and advice on what to do if you possess the recalled product.
