Perdue Farms is recalling nearly 92,000 pounds of chicken nuggets because of concern that a small number of them may contain pieces of plastic. The nuggets are sold under the Great Value brand in Walmart stores in the United States.
“We determined the likely source was a small plastic ring that got into the raw material before the nuggets were formed,” said Bruce Stewart-Brown, Perdue’s senior vice president for food safety and quality, in a news release. The company says no one has been hurt.
The recall involves just over 50-thousand packages of fully cooked nuggets. Click here for packaging details. Perdue says no other Great Value or Perdue products are involved in the recall.
Perdue says concerned consumers should call 877-727-3447 or visit the USDA website.
