Tyson Foods recalling chicken nuggets

(NBC) -

Tyson foods is recalling about 132,000 pounds of chicken nuggets, because they may have be contaminated with hard plastic. 

The recall involved five pound bags of Tyson fully cooked Panko chicken nuggets with a "best if used by" date of July 18, 2017.

It also includes 20-pound bulk packages containing "spare time fully cooked, Panko chicken nuggets, nugget shaped chicken breast pattie fritters with rib meat." 

Tyson Foods says the recall is the result of customers discovering plastic material that likely came from a hard plastic rod used in the manufacturing process. Consumers should throw away the product or return it to the place where purchased.
