Perdue Foods, LLC, which is headquartered in Perry, Georgia, is recalling approximately 68,244 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken nugget products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically wood. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service made the announcement. 

The 22-ounce bags of SimplySmart Organics Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets were produced on October 25, 2018. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.     

The problem was discovered when the firm received three consumer complaints that wood was found in the product. A complaint was also reported to FSIS’ consumer complaint monitoring system.
