If you were thinking of serving chicken nuggets for dinner, think again.
Tyson Foods, Inc. has issued a voluntary recall of 5-pound bags of Tyson Fully Cooked Panko Chicken Nuggets that were sold at Costco stores nationwide due to a small number of customer complaints about finding bits of hard, white plastic in the nuggets. Yes, plastic. The company is recalling approximately 132,520 pounds of product.
Luckily, no injuries have been reported, and smaller packages of Tyson chicken nuggets sold in smaller grocery stores are not impacted.
