If you have purchased the fun red & green dinosaur chicken nuggets from Tyson recently, you’ll want to check your bag.

The company is recalling almost 30,000 pounds of the frozen dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets due to the potential presence of small metal pieces in the products.

According to a release the potentially affected product was sold in a 29-ounce plastic bag and is labeled “TYSON FULLY COOKED FUN NUGGETS BREADED SHAPED CHICKEN PATTIES.”

The recalled product has a Best if Used By date of September 4, 2024.

So far only one “minor oral injury” has been reported after consuming the Fun Nuggets, but no additional injuries or illnesses have been linked to this recall.

Tyson says simply throw it out or return it for a full refund.
