Tyson recalls 34165 kg of chicken product after consumers complaints


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.
