Do not reheat those chicken nuggets. Tyson Foods recalled 132,520 pounds of chicken nuggets yesterday, saying they may contain plastic. The company learned of the issue when a customer reported finding “foreign material” in his chicken nugget, CNN reports. The plastic may have come from a rod used in the manufactory, the company says.

The recall is class I, so there is a “reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.” So far, no one has been hurt.

The recall impacts two products: five-pound bags of panko-coated chicken nuggets that have a date of July 18, 2017, and Spare Time pattie fritters that were produced on July 18 of this year and shipped to Pennsylvania. Customers with these packages should throw them away or return them, the USDA says.
