Chicken Recall Affects 1,440 Pounds of Chicken

BRIDGEWATER, Va -- Perdue Foods, LLC, is recalling approximately 1,440 pounds of chicken breast nugget products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen, milk, not declared on the label. Tthe U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced the recall on Thursday.

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” 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. FSIS and the company have not received reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a health care provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Purdue Consumer Relations at 1-877-727-3447.
