You’ve heard the joke that chicken nuggets taste like plastic? This time it’s no joke. Tyson Foods issued a recall yesterday for approximately 132,520 pounds of fully cooked chicken nugget products after the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS) found that the chicken nuggets may be contaminated with hard plastic. Although it’s unclear if customers will be able to taste the difference, Tyson was forced to issue a recall since plastic isn’t listed as an actual ingredient on the packages.
Tyson announced the recall on their Facebook page praising themselves for voluntarily doing it as if they had a choice after customers called to complain they found plastic in their chicken nuggets. What were they going to do? Let people eat the plastic? Note that this deplorable company doesn’t even have the humility to apologize for potentially choking its customers to death with plastic. Typical Tyson.
In addition to adding actual plastic to their chicken nuggets, Tyson illegally dumps toxic waste in our water, punches chickens in the face, lies to their shareholders, allegedly violates federal antitrust laws, controls politicians, and abuses and cheats their employees.
