EDISON -

Tyson Foods is recalling 36,000 pounds of chicken nuggets because they may have been contaminated with rubber.

The recall affects Tyson's fully cooked panko nuggets packed in five-pound bags:

5-lb. plastic packages of “Tyson WHITE MEAT PANKO CHICKEN NUGGETS” with a “BEST IF USED BY” date of “NOV 26 2019,” case code “3308SDL03” and time stamps 23:00 through 01:59 (inclusive).

According to the company, a small number of consumers found tiny pieces of soft blue rubbers in their chicken.

The items were produced on Nov. 26, 2018, and bear establishment number “P-13556” inside the USDA mark of inspection. 

The affected food was shipped to distribution centers in five states, including New Jersey.

The company says there are no reports of any injuries, and so far, the problem doesn’t appear to be widespread.
