July 19, 2010 – According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), Perdue Farms, Inc., a Perry, Ga. establishment, is recalling approximately 91,872 pounds of frozen chicken nugget products that may contain foreign materials,
The products subject to recall include:
• 1-pound, 13-ounce bag of “GREAT VALUE Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets.” Each bag bears the establishment number “P-33944” as well as a case code of “89008 A0160” on the backside of the packaging. There is also a “BEST IF USED BY” date of June 9, 2011. (Blogger’s note: This chicken seems to have a long freezer shelf life.)
Each case contains eight bags and the frozen chicken nugget products were produced on June 9, 2010, then shipped to Wal-Mart stores nationwide.
The company discovered small pieces of blue plastic after receiving consumer complaints. FSIS has not received any reports of injury at this time. Anyone concerned about an injury from consumption of this product should contact a doctor.
