The Ministry of Health is telling customers not to purchase frozen chicken nuggets manufactured by Tyson Foods Inc., following a recall by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
The US recall involved 36,000 pounds of the frozen chicken nuggets and was done after consumers reported finding soft blue pieces of rubber inside this food product.
"To this end, and out of the abundance of caution, the Ministry of Health is warning consumers not to purchase Tyson Chicken Nuggets with the best by November 26, 2019: case code 3308SDL03, time stamp ranging from 23:00 hours to 01:59," the ministry said.
It notes that while there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due its consumption, consumers are advised not to consume this product.
"Additionally, wholesalers are advised to voluntarily recall this product with immediate effect," the ministry said.
It said that representatives from the Chemistry, Food and Drugs Division and the Office of the Chief Public Health Inspector will conduct inspections at wholesalers, retailers and other establishments which offer food for sale.
This will be to ensure that this product is not consumed.
The ministry says that anyone who has purchased the affected product should contact the Ministry of Health’s Chemistry, Food and Drugs Division.
