Atlanta - A Gainesville, Georgia establishment in the U.S. is recalling approximately 15,306 pounds of a frozen, fully cooked chicken nugget product that may be contaminated with extraneous materials.
A batch of "Applegate “Naturals” chicken nuggets' has been recalled due to the possible presence of plastic material. Applegate products are owned by the company Perdue. The announcement about the recall of the chicken nuggets comes from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The product subject to the recall is described as:
"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”. The products were shipped to retail outlets across the U.S. The nuggets are sold at Whole Foods Market and Trader Joe’s
Chicken nuggets are chicken products made from either meat slurry or chicken breasts cut to shape, breaded or battered, then deep-fried or baked.
According to the FSIS, concern with the chicken nuggets was discovered after the firm received consumer complaints that small pieces of plastic were found in the products.
It should be noted, as Fox News reports, that the company have received no reports of injury or illness from consumption of the product.
