The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following Chicken Breast Nuggets are subject to this recall:

  • 38-ounce (2.975-pound) boxes of Yummy brand fully cooked “Chicken Breast Nuggets | 100% All Natural*, nugget-shaped chicken breast patty fritters with rib meat, Product of Canada” with a best-if-used-by date of 07/18/17.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the USDA, the Chicken Breast Nuggets were produced in July 2015 and were imported to the United States between July 30, 2015 and March 5, 2016.

Maxi Canada, Inc., a Québec, Canada, establishment, exported approximately 103,752 pounds of the Yummy brand Chicken Breast Nuggets to the US that may be contaminated with metal pieces. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (“CFIA”) has notified the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) of the Canadian recall.

The recalled Chicken Products bear establishment number, “Canada Est. 348” and a UPC number of 064563225782. The Chicken Breast Nuggets were shipped to retail locations in the United States nationwide and can be found at retailers such as Kroger, Walmart and Safeway.

The problem was discovered when a consumer from the United States complained to Maxi Canada, Inc. of a foreign object in the Chicken Nuggets. Maxi Canada, Inc. initiated a recall on March 5, 2016, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency subsequently notified the FSIS.

If plastic or metal fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the Chicken Breast Nuggets. If you are concerned about an injury or illness potentially associated with the recalled product, however, please contact your physician or local hospital emergency department as soon as possible.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Yummy brand Chicken Breast Nuggets, please do not consume them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
