There's a hidden murderer hiding in your freezer. Forgive the overly-dramatic intro, but you do need to check your freezer since there's been a huge chicken nugget recall.

This time, it's Tyson who has just recalled over 130,000 pounds of chicken nuggets which may be contaminated with hard plastic. Yuck.  Here are the specifics from Tyson from their press release.

  • The fully cooked Panko Chicken Nuggets items were produced on July 18, 2016. The following products are subject to recall:
  • 5-lb. bag containing “Tyson FULLY COOKED PANKO CHICKEN NUGGETS” with a “Best If Used By” date of July 18, 2017 and case code 2006SDL03 and 2006SDL33.
  • 20-lb. bulk packages containing “SPARE TIME Fully Cooked, Panko Chicken Nuggets, Nugget Shaped Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters With Rib Meat” with a production date of July 18, 2016 and case code 2006SDL03.
  • The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 13556” printed adjacent to the “Best If Used By” date on the back of the package. The 20-pound cases were shipped for institutional use in Pennsylvania and the five-pound bags were shipped to retail locations nationally.

I don't ever remember seeing "Panko Chicken Nuggets" at any Idaho store I've ever shopped at, but better to pass this along just in case.

If you can't get enough of food recalls, you can always have fun with the USDA's recall list which will keep you updated on what food might be after you.
