  • According to the USDA, the problem was first discovered after the firm received several consumer complaints regarding plastic contamination of the Chicken Nuggets. The firm notified the USDA’s Food Safety Inspection Service (“FSIS”) personnel of the issue on April 6, 2016. FSIS personnel identified additional affected product types and dates of production after investigating additional consumer complaints of foreign material contamination received by the recalling firm.

If plastic, metal, rubber or wood 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.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Chicken Products, please do not consume them directly or use them in another dish. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
