Frozen dinosaur-shaped "Fun Nuggets" may be contaminated with metal pieces and have been voluntarily recalled.
The company recalled nearly 30,000 pounds of fully cooked, breaded, shaped chicken patty products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.
The products were sold in 29-oz. plastic bag packages and shipped to distributors in Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
The affected products have a “Best If Used By” date of September 4, 2024, and one of the following lot codes:
All products were produced on September 5, 2023, and their cases may be identified by code 048153-6910, 10000048153.
The company notified FSIS about possible contamination after receiving consumer complaints reporting small metal pieces in the chicken patty product. Officials know only one "minor oral injury" associated with consuming these nuggets.
FSIS is concerned that consumers may have possibly contaminated nuggets in their freezers and urges them to throw the products away or return to the place of purchase.
