Tyson recalled a total of over 132,000 pounds of their delicious chicken nuggets which were primarily sold throughout various Costco stores. The reason being is that the possibility of hard plastics were mixed in with the little white breaded morsels.
Lucky for us all, the nuggets that were recalled were only the five pound "Panko" bags you can find at the freezer section in Costco Stores. To help you precisely identify them, these particular bags have an expiration date of 7/18/17 as well as case codes of: 2006SDL33 or 2006SDL03. Although the 20-pound bags do not affect the great state of Utah; Pennsylvania has a recall for the larger restaurant chains that might have purchased their: Nugget Shaped Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters With Rib Meat, Spare Time Fully Cooked or the infamous Panko Chicken Nuggets as well!
It was reported from the USDA that customer complaints were shared that plastic bits as large as 6.5 MM in diameter upwards of 21 MM in length were found in their chicken. Tyson is unsure of what mechanical part is the culprit at this time. Although it is speculated that it has something to do with the transfer belt.
If you have this product in possession you are to throw it away immediately and to work with Tyson directly if you have any additional questions. They can be reached at 1 (866) 328-3156.

Even though there has been a steady decline in regards of targeting our youth with sugar or candy type advertisements; there appears to be a direct correlation with fast food restaurants and catering their commercials towards children (Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, 2010).
What exactly does this mean for all of the wonderful children in Utah? What are both the short and long-term implications associated with it? Are there severe consequences in the nearby future or is all of this just an overreaction to nothing of concern?
One thing is for certain here...the amount of advertisements geared toward our youth seem to only go onward and upward. This particular issue deserves to be at least examined a little closer before completely disregarded. Especially if you are a business owner of a restaurant or fast food joint. You might want to raise your consciousness and be more aware of your audience. Then again, you may be a part of the masses and want to directly target our youth in all of your advertising efforts?
It is the opinion and stance of this newspaper that this type of advertising behavior can only have a negative (adverse reaction) to our children. One, being that they are learning from a young age that fast food is good or even healthy for them and that they can eat as much as they want. Two, because of the first poorly adopted belief system our youth are much more highly at risk for obesity and other health related complications.
As it stands, Salt Lake city Review is unaware of any true fast food chain that is helming people loose weight and become more healthy. However, to help us eat crow, we will admit that Subway Sandwiches is doing a great job in leading the way for a healthier fast food generation. Albeit, even Subway has some sandwiches that are disgustingly high in caloric count and they are just barely catching on that parents are becoming more health conscience by offer a whole grain flax seed flat bread. They are definitely headed in the right direction.
In summary, parents beware that your youth are being programmed as to what they should eat and it is your duty to help them make healthier choices so long as they live under your roof. If you want a double whammy, why not open up your own health conscience fast food chain to help our Utah Youth out?!
