Over 75,000 pounds of frozen, fully cooked chicken nuggets are being recalled after possibly being contaminated with pieces of plastic.
According to the USDA, the problem was discovered after consumers complained that small pieces of plastic were found in the Tyson chicken nuggets. The problem was then traced to a product scraped inside a blending machine.
The products affected include:
-5 lb. bags of "Tyson Fully Cooked White Meat Chicken Nuggets" with a "Best if Used By" date of Jan. 26, 2015 or Feb. 16 2015.
