Fans of oddly shaped chunks of delicious chickens should probably check their refrigerators and freezers. Two well-known brands remembered chicken nuggets this week – and one of those brands also remembered nuggets earlier this month.
Tyson Foods Inc. announced on Tuesday a recall of over 36,000 pounds of frozen nuggets. A Warning from the US Department of Agriculture for Food Safety and Inspection (FSIS).
That's not all: Perdue Foods, LLC, recalled a batch of chilled chicken nuggets (we're dinosaur-shaped) sad to report) on Monday for false branding and a undeclared allergen (the Products contain milk but that is missing on the label), according to another publication from the FSIS. This is the second Perdue Nugget Recall recently. The company remembered two weeks ago gluten-free chicken nuggets (19459005), as there may have been wood .
The Tyson issue was discovered after consumer complaints, as was the Perdue question with wood. Perdue's recent recall was spurred on when a retail location informed the company about a false labeling problem.
Products affected by both recalls include:
- 5-lb. "Tyson WHITE MEAT PANKO CHICKEN NUGGETS" plastic packaging with a date that best matches date "NOV 26 2019", case code "3308SDL03" and time stamps from 23:00 to 01:59 inclusive (inclusive)
- 12 is -oz. Packs of "PERDUE Fun Shapes Chicken Breast Nuggets" with a "USE BY" date of "MAR 11 2019" and the lot codes 17009010 – 19009010
- 22 oz. Plastic bag packaging for frozen "PERDUE SimplySmart ORGANICS BREADED CHICKEN BREAST NUGGETS GLUTEN FREE" with a "Best By: Date 25.10.19" and a UPC barcode "72745-80656" shown on the label
. There were no confirmed reports of illness or adverse events related to the recall. However, if you have bought one of the recalled products, you should not eat it. Instead, FSIS recommends disposing of them or returning them to where you bought them.
