Perdue Recalls Chicken Nuggets Due To Misbranding & Undeclared Allergen
WASHINGTON (WJZ)— Perdue Foods is recalling approximately 1,440 pounds of chicken breast nugget products because of misbranding and an allergen, milk, not declared on the label.
The products subject to recall include bundled packages containing 3 12-oz. tray packs of Perdue Original Chicken Breast Nuggets. Each package bears the establishment number P. 369 inside the USDA mark of inspection and a sell by date of Dec. 16, 2012.
The products were produced on Oct. 16, 2012, and distributed to retail stores in Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
The problem was discovered by the company and occurred as a result of an ingredient reformulation and a labeling error. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and the company have not received reports of bad reactions due to consumption of the chicken nuggets.
Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
