Tyson Foods, Inc. is recalling thousands of pounds of chicken nuggets

What kind of chicken nuggets did you buy on your last grocery trip? If it was from this Tyson Foods, Inc. (ticker: TSN) product, the company wants you to throw them out and seek a refund.

The company said Tuesday it was recalling five-pound bags of Tyson Fully Cooked Panko Chicken Nuggets, found in Costco Wholesale Corp. (COST) locations across the country. It also announced a recall for 20-pound cases of bulk Spare Time brand cooked nugget-shaped chicken breast pattie fritters with rib meat, though these only were distributed to one Pennsylvania wholesaler. These patties feature item No. 23575-861.

Some consumers told the company they discovered little hard, white plastic pieces in the nuggets. The company is still recalling 132,520 pounds of product even though only a small amount of consumers reported the plastic pieces. There have been no injury reports, the company said in a news release.

These types of cautionary recalls are quite common across the food industry. Most recently, Kellogg Co. (K) recalled some Eggo waffles, prompted by listeria concerns.

The recalled five-pound Tyson Fully Cooked Panko Chicken Nuggets bought at Costco since July 2016 feature this information: UPC code of 0-237000-3558-5; item No. 23575-928; and many have “best if used by” dates of July 18, 2017 and case codes 2006SDL03 or 2006SDL33. The recalled products feature this establishment number: P-13556. The Spare Time products include the same “use by” dates.

The company recommends you dispose of the product, but cut out and mail the UPC and date code on the back of the packaging to this address for a refund: Tyson Foods — CP631, P.O. Box 2020, Springdale, AR, 72765-9989.

Tyson Foods stock is up about 41.9 percent on the year.
