Tyson Foods is recalling one type of chicken nuggets, because they may have been contaminated with plastic.

The recall affects Tyson’s fully cooked panko nuggets packed in 5-pound bags, sold since November 26th.

The company says a small number of consumers found tiny pieces of soft blue plastic in their chicken.

Tyson says there are no reports of injuries.

So far, the problem does not appear to be widespread.

But out of an abundance of caution, the company is recalling more than 36-thousand pounds of the product.

The affected food was shipped to club store distribution centers in Arizona, California, Illinois, Utah and New Jersey.
