A chlorine gas leak that sickened nearly 200 people at a Tyson Foods plant in Arkansas last year happened because a worker who couldn't read the English-language label on a barrel of chemicals inadvertently poured bleach into it, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a report released Thursday.

Tyson Foods is recalling about 75,320 pounds of frozen, fully-cooked chicken nuggets — among them some bags sold at Sam's Club stores nationwide — because they may contain small pieces of plastic.
The following products are subject to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) recall:
The product bags bear the establishment number "P-13556."
Tyson said the affected 5-pound packages were sold at Sam's Club locations nationwide and that products sold in smaller packages or at any other retailer are not affected by this recall.
The problem was discovered after the firm received consumer complaints that small pieces of plastic were found in the products. The problem was traced to a product scraper inside a blending machine.
The company has received reports of minor oral injury associated with consumption of these products. FSIS has received no additional reports of injury or illness from consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness from consumption of these products should contact a healthcare provider.
Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Tyson Foods Consumer Services toll free at 866-328-3156.
