(CNN)– Tyson Foods is voluntarily recalling over 13,600 kilograms of its dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets after some consumers reported finding small pieces of metal in their nuggets.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA), the recall, announced this Saturday, affects 29-ounce packages containing “fully cooked fun nuggets breaded chicken patties”.
These bags have a expiration date of September 4, 2024, and were sold in Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
According to the USDA, there was a “minor oral injury” associated with consuming the nuggets, but no other injuries have been reported so far.
However, agency officials said they were concerned that consumers may still have bags of the recalled “fun nuggets” in their freezers, and advised anyone who has them to discard or return the product immediately.
Tyson advised buyers and consumers of the recalled nuggets to cut out the UPC code and package date and call or text 1-855-382-3101.
Tyson did not immediately respond to CNN’s requests for comments.
The Arkansas-based company is the second-largest meat processor in the world.
