More than 31,000 pounds of Perdue Foods ready-to-eat chicken products have been voluntarily recalled because of “possible foreign matter contaminants,” including pieces of bone, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a statement Friday.
The chicken products were produced March 21 with a use-by date of May 20.
The recalled products also include Chef Quik breaded chicken tenders with product code 22143 and Chef Quik breaded chicken strips with the product code 77265.Those products include Perdue Simply Smart Organics Gluten Free chicken breast tenders with the UPC barcode 072745-001437; Perdue Simply Smart Organics whole grain chicken breast nuggets with the UPC barcode 072745-001642; and Perdue Simply Smart Organics chicken breast strips with the UPC barcode 072745-002656. Officials are concerned that some consumers may have put the products in the freezer.
While there haven’t been any confirmed reports of adverse reactions, officials are advising consumers to throw recalled products away or return them to where they were purchased.
