The troubling news was just reported that two prominent food brands are recalling their chicken nuggets. According to reports, Tyson Foods, Inc. is recalling 36,420 pounds of chicken nuggets and Perdue Foods is recalling 16,000 pounds.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, the panko chicken nuggets that Tyson Foods recalled were produced on November 26, 2018.
The product in question are “Tyson WHITE MEAT PANKO CHICKEN NUGGETS” with a Best If Used By date of November 26, 2019. The case code is “3308SDL03.”
Tyson Foods discovered that there were reports of extraneous material in their Panko Chicken Nuggets. Some reported that rubber was discovered in their chicken.
The other company in question, Perdue Foods, is recalling 16,000 pounds of chicken due to the fact that their labels have been put in question. According to Fox, their labels do not reflect some of their ingredients.
Perdue’s chicken nuggets were sold in D.C., Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
The products being recalled from Perdue Foods are 12-ounce packages of Perdue Fun Shapes Chicken Breast Nuggets with use-by dates of March 11, 2019.
Thankfully, no reports have emerged about consumers of either brands getting sick from the recalled chicken nuggets. However, because the used-by dates are so far out, the FSIS is concerned that consumers will have them leftover in their freezers.
