Tyson Recalls Chicken Nuggets Sold in 2014

Tyson Foods announced that it is voluntarily recalling 5-pound bags of frozen Tyson white meat chicken nuggets that were sold at Sam’s Club locations nationwide. 

The food producer said in a statement that a "small number of consumers who contacted the company indicated they had found small pieces of plastic in the nuggets," prompting the company to issue the recall.

The affected product lots were produced on two days on a single line at one of the company’s 40 chicken production facilities. 

Products sold in smaller packages or at any other retailer are not affected by this recall. 

Consumers who have purchased 5-pound bags of frozen, fully-cooked, Tyson white meat chicken nuggets at Sam’s Club since January 2014 should compare any remaining product with the following product identifiers: 

UPC: 0-23700-02178 6 or 300-23700-02178 7
Item # 16142-928
Manufacturer’s Code: 0264SDL0315 through 0319 or
0474SDL0311 through 0314
Lots feature “best if used by” dates of
Jan 26, 2015 or Feb 16, 2015

If a consumer has a bag of affected product, they should discard the product, cut the UPC and date code from the back of the bag and mail it to the following address for a full refund:
