WASHINGTON, Aug. 12, 2014 – Perdue, a Gainesville, Ga. establishment, is recalling approximately 15,306 pounds of frozen, fully cooked chicken nugget product that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's FSIS announced today.

The following product is subject to recall:

8-oz. box of “APPLEGATE naturals CHICKEN NUGGETS” bearing the establishment number “P2617” and the “BEST BEFORE” date of “02/05/15”. The product was produced on Feb. 5, 2014, with a sell by date of Feb. 5, 2015 and bear the establishment number “P2617” inside the USDA Mark of Inspection. The products were shipped to retail outlets nationwide.

The problem was discovered after the firm received consumer complaints that small pieces of plastic were found in the products.

Anyone concerned about an injury or illness from consumption of these products should contact a healthcare provider.
