Tyson Foods is voluntarily recalling about 30,000 pounds of its dino-shaped chicken patties after some consumers reported finding small pieces of metal in their patties.
The recall, announced Saturday, is for packages of 29-ounce plastic bags containing frozen, “fully cooked delicious chicken nuggets,” according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Those bags have a “best if used until” date of September 4, 2024, and were sold in Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.
There have been “minor oral injuries” related to the use of nuggets, according to the USDA, but no other reports of injuries so far.
But agency officials said they are concerned that consumers may still have bags of these recalled “delicious nuggets” in their refrigerators, and are advising anyone who does to throw away or return the product immediately.
Tyson advised consumers and buyers of the recalled coins to cross out the UPC and date code on the packaging and call or text 1-855-382-3101.
Tyson did not immediately respond to CNN’s requests for comment.
The Arkansas-based company is the world’s second-largest meat processor.
