Perdue Recalls 15,000 Pounds Of Frozen Chicken Nuggets
by News


PHILADELPHIA -- Perdue is recalling about 15,000 pounds of frozen, fully cooked chicken nuggets after the firm received consumer complaints that small pieces of plastic were found in the products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said.

The affected boxes were produced on February 5, 2014, have a "best before" date of February 5, 2015 and bear the establishment number "P2617" inside the USDA Mark of Inspection.

The products were shipped to retail outlets nationwide.

The problem was discovered after Perdue received consumer complaints that small pieces of plastic were found in the products.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of injury or illness from consumption of the product. FSIS advises anyone concerned about an injury or illness from consumption of these products should contact a healthcare provider.

Applegate conducted a market withdrawal of this product on Aug. 8, 2014. However, as this is a frozen product, consumers may still have this product in their possession.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Gerry Clarkson, Applegate Consumer Relations Specialist at (800) 587-5858.
