Tyson Foods, Perdue Recall More Than 50,000 Pounds of Chicken Nuggets
Two of the largest chicken companies in the U.S. issued recalls on chicken nugget products this week.
Tyson Foods is recalling approximately 36,420 pounds of chicken nugget products that may be contaminated with rubber, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.
The recall, which was issued on January 29, applies to 5-lb. plastic packages of Tyson White Meat Panko Chicken Nuggets with a best if use by date of November 26, 2019 and a case code of 3308SDL03. They also bear an establishment number of P-13556 inside the USDA mark of inspection, according to the FSIS.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products, but the FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers.
Meanwhile, Perdue Foods is recalling approximately 16,011 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken nugget products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens.
The products contain milk, which is not declared on the product label.
This recall, which was issued on January 28, applies to 12-oz. packages of Perdue Fun Shapes Chicken Breast Nuggets with a use by date of March 11, 2019 and lot codes 17009010–19009010.
The products subject to recall bear an establishment number of P-369 inside the USDA mark of inspection, according to the FCIS.
Affected packages were shipped to retail locations in Connecticut; Delaware; Washington, DC; Maine; Maryland; Massachusetts; New Jersey; New York; Ohio; Pennsylvania; Rhode Island; Vermont; Virginia; and West Virginia.
People who have purchased these products should not consume them—the FCIS urges consumers to either throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
