MAR. 8, 2019: Do you eat rubber? Does it even seem like it would taste delicious? Well, thousands of kids love to eat McDonald’s nuggets, Chick Fil A, and frozen store-bought chicken nuggets. We all like to eat our nuggets with ketchup, honey mustard, or barbecue sauce. But guess what? Tyson’s Chicken is pulling their nuggets out of stores. The nuggets have been recalled by USDA because they have found rubber inside the meat. This is very crazy because what if somebody chokes on the rubber or dies?

Tyson's chicken had to change their recipe by getting rid of rubber in their chicken nuggets because humans can’t digest rubber.  Imagine how rubber would go down in your digestive system. Chicken nuggets can’t contain rubber or they won’t be able to be sold. According to USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, this product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.

I strongly feel that eating rubber chicken nuggets is very frightening because rubber is used on car tires which is very disgusting. Let’s just be real for a moment...this doesn’t seem possible in the United States. Let’s just hope that we don’t have another food crisis like the lettuce scare.  My favorite snack is orange slices and what if they had something bad in them? I would be very sad because I wouldn’t be able to eat orange slices or as long as it took to fix the problem.
