Tyson Foods Inc. has initiated a recall of approximately 30,000 pounds of its “Fun Nuggets” breaded chicken products following reports from customers about the presence of metal fragments in the dinosaur-shaped items.

These chicken nuggets, packaged in 29-ounce bags and manufactured on September 5, come from the company’s Berryville, Arkansas, establishment. The company has proactively communicated with the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, asserting that the recall is a precautionary measure taken to ensure consumer safety. The FSIS has noted a single instance of a minor oral injury that was reported in relation to the consumption of the affected product.

The specific packages of chicken nuggets affected by this recall are marked with the establishment number P7211 located on the package’s rear. These items have been distributed to several states—among them Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin—and were intended for further retail distribution.

Consumers who have purchased these nuggets and currently have them in their home freezers are advised by the USDA to either dispose of the product or return it to their place of purchase for a refund.
