Tyson Foods is recalling its dinosaur-shaped chicken “Fun Nuggets'” the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on Saturday.
Tyson is recalling 30,000 pounds of its 29-ounce plastic bag packages containing “Fully Cooked Fun Nuggets Breaded Shaped Chicken Patties,” due to concerns that the product “may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal pieces.”
Tyson discovered the problem after a “limited number of consumers” reported finding “small, pliable metal pieces” in their “Fun Nuggets,” the brand said in a statement shared on its website.

There has been one report of a “minor oral injury” related to the contamination but no additional reports of injury or illness, the FSIS stated.
