Perdue Foods, a leading American food producer, is recalling nearly 31,703 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products that may have been contaminated. Announcing the recall, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) says some of their chicken products may have contained pieces of bone and other materials not normally found in the food brand. The Food Safety and Inspection Service and Perdue Foods uncovered the problem after they received numerous complaints. The recalled items are from the Perdue’s “Simply Smart Organics” and “Chef Quick” lines, which include refrigerated chicken nuggets, strips, and tenders.

 

The FSIS says the products below were produced on March 21, 2019, and many of them had a use date of May 20, 2019.
