Be sure to check your freezers! Perdue is voluntarily recalling 68,244 pounds or approximately 49,632 bags of frozen, fully cooked organic gluten free chicken breast nuggets due to packages potentially being contaminated with pieces of wood.
“After a thorough investigation, we strongly believe this to be an isolated incident, as only a minimal amount of these packages has the potential to contain pieces of wood. Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to recall all packages of PERDUE SIMPLY SMART Organics Gluten Free Chicken Breast Nuggets produced during the same product run,” said Jeff Shaw, Perdue’s Vice President for Quality Assurance.
These recalled items includes 22-ounce bags of the Simplysmart Organics Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets with a “Best If Used By Date” of 10/25/2019 and a UPC bar code number of 72745-80656, and UPC product bar code of 72745-80656. The package also lists an Establishment number of “P-33944.”
If you have any of the affected packages, Purdue advises customers to not consume the product and to contact Perdue Foods at 877-727-3447 for a full refund.
