Tyson Foods has recalled 36,420lb of its Panko Chicken Nuggets across all stores nationwide over concerns that the product may contain plastic.

Tyson reported that a small number of consumers contacted the company to say they had found small pieces of soft, blue plastic in the nuggets.

The US company has urged those who have purchased the nuggets to discard the product, cut the UPC and date code from the back of the packaging and mail it to Tyson Foods for a full refund.

The recall includes Tyson’s Panko Chicken Nuggets purchased since 26 November 2018, with the following information:

•    UPC: 0 23700 03558 5

•    ‘Best if used by’ dates of November 26, 2019

•    Case codes 3308SDL03, with time stamps of 23:00 to 01:59

•    Establishment “P13556”

The five-pound bags of nuggets were distributed to stores in Arizona, California, Illinois, New Jersey and Utah.
