Tyson Foods Issues Recall – Includes Distributors in Alabama

Tyson Foods is recalling nearly 30,000 pounds of their breaded chicken Fun Nuggets after consumers complained of finding metal pieces in the dinosaur-shaped patties; the nuggets sold in 29-ounce bags – were produced in the Berryville, Arkansas area – by the company.

Tyson informed the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety & Inspection Service and said it recalled the nuggets voluntarily “out of an abundance of caution.’’ The USDA said that there had been only one report of a “minor oral injury associated with the consumption of this product.’’

The nuggets subject to that recall carry the number “P7211” on the back of the package – and they were shipped to distributors here in Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin, to be passed on to retailers.

The USDA urged consumers with those nuggets in their freezers to throw them out or return them to the place of purchase.
