Tyson Foods really took the fun out of Fun Nuggets last weekend when it voluntarily recalled approximately 30,000 pounds of hazardous dinosaur-shaped nuggets. The recall affected distributors in eight states — Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin — which received frozen, fully cooked dinosaur nuggets that potentially have small pieces of metal inside of them.
This recall isn’t the first that Tyson Foods has issued this year. In July, the company recalled 8.5 million pounds of frozen food that was manufactured in Dexter, Mississippi, and that possibly contained listeria. The company has also recalled products containing foreign objects before, as well. In 2022, Tyson recalled 93,697 pounds of beef that had foreign, metal particles in it.
There are health risks associated with ingesting metal particles, including causing injury to the esophagus and GI tract. Tyson Foods urged consumers with questions to call 1-855-382-3101.
