Foster Farms Recall Chicken Nuggets For Nasty Toxic Ingredients
Before you bite into one of those Foster Farms chicken nuggets, check whether it is among those recalled by the USDA. The agency issued a recall on 220,000 pounds of Foster Farms chicken nuggets due to reports of traces of blue plastic and black rubber in them.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration advised consumers against eating Foster Farms chicken nuggets that were subject of the recall. Teen Vogue said that although there was no report of adverse health effects from eating these Foster Farms chicken nuggets, it is best not to consume them just to be on the safer side.

Recalled Foster Farms Chicken Nuggets
There were two Foster Farms chicken nuggets that were the subject of recall: "FOSTER FARMS Breast Nuggets - Nugget Shaped Breaded Chicken Breast Patties with Rib Meat" and 'FOSTER FARMS "Fully Cooked Breast Nuggets - Nugget Shaped Chicken Breast Patties with Rib Meat Fritters."' These are five-pound bags and ten-pound bags respectively.
Check if the expiry or "best by" dates on the Foster Farms chicken nuggets are 2/21/17 and 3/8/17. If you see any of these dates, better take them back to the store where you got them to seek a refund. If it would be much of a hassle, better throw it away.
Distributed In Five States
Fox News mentioned that these Foster Farms chicken nuggets were shipped to distributors in five states: Alaska, California, Arizona, Washington and Utah. If you live in any of these areas and have recently purchased the recalled chicken nuggets, better check if they are among those that were included in the recall.
In the event that Foster Farms chicken nuggets reached you even if you are not living in any of the five states mentioned, it is still best to check them and see whether they are among those recalled. The blue plastic and black rubber may not get you hospitalized, but they are certainly not among the ingredients you want to ingest when you eat chicken nuggets.
