Two Brands of Chicken Nuggets Were Recalled This Week

Fans of oddly shaped chunks of delicious chicken should probably check their fridges and freezers. Two popular brands recalled chicken nugget products this week—and one of those brands also recalled nuggets earlier this month.

Tyson Foods Inc. announced a recall of more than 36,000 pounds of frozen nuggets on Tuesday due to the possible presence of rubber, according to an alert from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

That's not all: Perdue Foods, LLC, recalled a batch of refrigerated chicken nuggets (dinosaur shaped, we are sad to report) on Monday due to incorrect branding and an undeclared allergen (the products contain milk, but that's missing from the label), according to another release from the FSIS. This is the second Perdue nugget recall recently; the company recalled some gluten-free chicken nugget products two weeks ago due to the possible presence of wood in them.

The Tyson issue was discovered after consumer complaints, as was the Perdue issue with wood. The more recent Perdue recall was spurred when a retail location notified the company of an incorrect labeling issue.

The products affected by both recalls include:

  • 5-lb. plastic packages of “Tyson WHITE MEAT PANKO CHICKEN NUGGETS” with a “BEST IF USED BY” date of “NOV 26 2019,” case code “3308SDL03,” and time stamps 23:00 through 01:59 (inclusive)
  • 12-oz. packages of “PERDUE Fun Shapes Chicken Breast Nuggets” with a “USE BY” date of “MAR 11 2019” and lot codes 17009010 – 19009010
  • 22-oz. plastic bag packages of frozen “PERDUE SimplySmart ORGANICS BREADED CHICKEN BREAST NUGGETS GLUTEN FREE” with a “Best By: Date 10/25/19” and UPC Bar Code “72745-80656” represented on the label

Thankfully, there haven't been any confirmed reports of illnesses or adverse events associated with any of the recalls. But if you happen to have purchased any of the recalled products, you should not eat them. Instead, the FSIS advises you to discard them or return them to where you bought them.
