Tyson Foods recalls 5lb bags of chicken nuggets sold at Costco stores

Published 28 September 2016

Tyson Foods announced a voluntary recall of 5-pound bags of Tyson Fully Cooked Panko Chicken Nuggets that were sold at Costco locations nationwide.

It recalled a small number of 20-pound cases of bulk Spare Time brand cooked nugget-shaped chicken breast pattie fritters with rib meat that were sold to a single wholesaler in Pennsylvania.

It has also recalled a small number of 20-pound cases of bulk Spare Time brand cooked nugget-shaped chicken breast pattie fritters with rib meat that were sold to a single wholesaler in Pennsylvania.

A small number of consumers contacted the company to say they had found small pieces of hard, white plastic in the nuggets, prompting the company to issue the recall. Though the plastic pieces have been found in a very small number of packages, out of an abundance of caution, the company is recalling 132,520 pounds of product.

No injuries have been reported with this recall. Products sold in smaller packages or at any other retailer are not affected by this recall.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-13556” printed adjacent to the “Best If Used By” date on the back of the package.

Tyson Foods has inspected all lines at the production facility to ensure product quality standards are being met and has implemented corrective measures at all of its facilities to prevent similar occurrences.
