The dates when these lots were produced at the same facility were Jan 26 and Feb. 16 this year.
Consumers are also advised to check the 5 lbs chicken nuggets bags for the following details before buying or if already bought from Sams Clubs:
“Item # 16142-928
Manufacturer’s Code: 0474SDL0314 down-to 0311 or
0264SDL0319 down-to 0315
UPC: 0-23700-02178 7 or 300-23700-02178 6″
In case consumers identify the details mentioned above on their products Tyson asks that the labels are cut before discarding the products. The labels entitle the consumer to a full refund if mailed to the following postal address: “Tyson Foods – CP631
P.O. Box 2020
Springdale, AR 72765-9989″
The cause of the incident was identified soon after the first complaints were received. It seems that the source of the plastic bits which were found in the nuggets was a product scraper found inside a blending machine. Corrective measures have been taken in order to prevent this situation from ever happening in the future.
