About 36,420 pounds of Tyson’s “White Meat Panko” chicken nuggets will be recalled after several consumers complained of extraneous material in the purchased product, the FSIS said.
There have been no confirmed reports of bad reactions after consuming the recalled chicken nuggets, the FSIS said.
The latest news comes on the heels of Tyson’s recall in June last year of 3,120 pounds of breaded chicken tenderloins, after a supplier notified that an ingredient may contain pieces of blue and clear soft plastic.
Packaged meat producer Perdue Foods on January 30 also recalled about 21,348 packages of chicken breast nuggets due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen.
