Tyson Foods, one of the largest US poultry companies, recalled a batch of chicken pieces after buyers found pieces of blue rubber inside.
The firm said it would withdraw more than 36,000 pounds (16,300 kg) of chicken nuggets "because of precaution."
Security officials said they are concerned that some potentially contaminated products may remain in household refrigerators.
Officials said no injuries or adverse reactions were reported.
However, the Food Safety and Inspection Service urged buyers to abandon the nuggets or return them.
Reminder applies to bags of white meat weighing 5 pounds, covered with bread crumbs. Products that expire on November 26, 2019 were “best when used” were shipped through the United States.
“Consumers who have purchased these products are strongly advised not to use them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase, ”it was reported.
In June, Tyson recalled about 3,100 pounds of frozen breaded chicken products. This review was caused by concerns that the nuggets were contaminated with plastic.
