The Problem Caused By Tyson’s Dino Nuggets
The primary cause for the recall of Tyson’s dino nuggets is the possible contamination with small metal fragments. This contamination was discovered after consumer complaints, which prompted Tyson to notify the U.S. The Food Safety and Inspection Service is part of the Department of Agriculture.
“The problem was discovered after the firm notified FSIS that it had received consumer complaints reporting small metal pieces in the chicken patty product.”- U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS)
This organization works to ensure the safety of food products in the United States. The FSIS reported that there has been a single instance of a reported minor oral injury linked to the consumption of this product. As a result, the recall was issued to prevent further incidents.
