Tyson Foods is voluntarily recalling about 30,000 pounds of its dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets after some consumers reported finding small pieces of metal in their patties.
The recall announced Saturday involves 29-ounce plastic bags of frozen, “fully cooked, breaded Fun Nuggets chicken patties,” according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
These bags have a best-before date of September 4, 2024 and were sold in Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.
According to the USDA, there was “a minor oral injury” associated with eating the nuggets, but there have been no other reports of harm to date.
However, agency officials said they were concerned that consumers may still have bags of the recalled “Fun Nuggets” in their freezers and advised anyone who does so to immediately discard or return the product.
Tyson advised buyers and consumers of the recalled nuggets to remove the UPC and date code from the packaging and call or text 1-855-382-3101.
Tyson did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.
The Arkansas-based company is the second largest meat processor in the world.
