Perdue Foods is recalling approximately 16,011 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) chicken nugget products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The products contain milk, which is not declared on the product label.
The 12-ounce packages of PERDUE Fun Shapes Chicken Breast Nuggets were produced on January 10 and shipped to retail locations in Connecticut, Delaware, Washington, D.C., Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia.
The problem was discovered when a retail store notified the company of an incorrect label. The establishment investigated and determined that the incorrect back label was applied to the product. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
