Nearly 30,000 pounds of dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets are being recalled because they may be contaminated with metal pieces, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said Saturday.

The recall is for packages of 29-ounce plastic bags from Tyson Foods containing frozen “fully cooked breaded chicken patties and fun patties” with a best-by date of Sept. 2, 2024, officials said. The product was shipped to distributors in Alabama, California, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

According to the USDA, one minor oral injury has been reported in connection with chicken nuggets.

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service said it was concerned that some customers still had the dinosaur nuggets in their freezers.

The nuggets, which were manufactured on September 5, are found in lots 2483BRV0207, 2483BRV0208, 2483BRV0209 and 2483BRV0210.

Tyson Foods chicken nuggets were recalled on November 4, 2023.

In its recall alert, Tyson Foods described the metal pieces as small and flexible. The company said the recall was made out of an abundance of caution.

The USDA said people who have bags of nuggets should throw them away or return them to the place where they were purchased. Tyson added that consumers who purchased the affected item should remove the UPC and date code from the packaging, throw away the product, and call or text1-855-382-3101.
