Tyson Foods is recalling 132,000 thousand pounds of chicken nuggets possibly containing bits of plastic from a conveyor belt that federal investigators said can cause “serious, adverse health consequences or death.”

Tyson announced the recall on Tuesday, reported Reuters.

According to USA Today, consumers complained about finding plastic parts in the chicken, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety Inspection Services identified the parts as small, hard, round plastic pieces that came from a conveyor belt.

The Food Safety Inspection service said Tyson inspects its chicken with a metal detector that wouldn’t have been able to detect plastic.

The bags of nuggets in question were sold at Costco Wholesale Corp stores nationally. These bags have a “best if used by” date of July 18, 2017, and the codes of the five-pound and 20-pound bags are 2006SDL03 and 2006SDL33, USA Today noted.

According to a USDA recall notice, the five-pound cases were shipped to retail locations across the country and the 20-pound cases were delivered for “institutional use” to a wholesaler in Pennsylvania.

According to Tyson, which is located in Springdale, Arkansas, there have been no injuries connected with the recall. However, the company said it was issuing the recall “out of an abundance of caution.”
