Food issues surface in your chicken nuggets

by Dr. Alan Kadish NMD

Once again our food supply has been compromised, with a foreign substance. In this case, it’s plastic in your nuggets . Be aware and this is another reason to really think about using less processed foods.

Food recalls happen regularly and few consumers are aware unless the press makes it an issue or you choose to subscribe to the FDA updates

Let me scare you a little bit more. When you look at the 2016 listing on the FDA’s website you’re going to see literally every food store you can name, having some food recall issue/s. 

The second wake-up call … it’s not exclusively any type of single product, such as the veggies, with bacterial contamination. Foreign matter seems to be an ongoing theme.  From plastic to metals, including lead has been in our food and then indeed there is plenty of troublesome bacteria. 

Take home: Eat as fresh as possible and if your using packaged food products put yourself on the FDA notification list, it’s free.

Tyson recalls 130,000 pounds of chicken nuggets

(CNN)Tyson Foods is voluntarily recalling more than 130,000 pounds of cooked chicken nuggets because they may contain hard plastic, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety Inspection Service said Tuesday.

The recall was issued after a customer reported finding “foreign material” in a chicken nugget product.

“According to Tyson Foods, the plastic material ranged in size from 21mm in length and 6.5mm in diameter and may have come from a round, hard plastic rod used to connect a plastic transfer belt. The firm said the products pass through a metal detector, but the plastic is not detectable to this technology,” the USDA recall announcement said.

In all, 132,520 pounds of chicken are subject to this recall, which applies to 5-pound bags of fully cooked panko chicken nuggets with a “use by” date of July 18, 2017. They also have case code 2006SDL03 and 2006SDL33 on the package.
Twenty-pound bulk packages of Spare Time nugget-shaped chicken breast pattie fritters with rib meat are also being recalled.
These bulk packages, which were shipped to Pennsylvania for “institutional use,” are marked with a production date of July 18, 2016, and case code 2006SDL03.
The recalled products should not be consumed, the USDA advised. Instead, they should be thrown away or returned.
This is a class l recall, which means there is “reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse heatlh consequences or death.” However, no adverse events have been reported so far.
