    Just over 31,000 pounds of chicken products have been recalled following a concern that they may be contaminated with pieces of bone and other “extraneous materials.”

    The United States Department of Agriculture issued a Class I recall of some Perdue Foods LLC chicken products.

    The fully cooked chicken products were produced March 21, 2019 and include the following: 

    • 11.2 oz. plastic trays containing “PERDUE Simply Smart ORGANICS BREADED CHICKEN BREAST TENDERS – GLUTEN FREE” with a “USE BY MAY 20 2019” and UPC bar code of 072745-001437 on the label.

    • 10-lb. bulk boxes of “Chef Quik Chicken Breast Strips Strip Shaped Breaded Chicken Breast Patties with Rib Meat” with Case Code 77265 on the label.

     

    The problem was discovered after the USDA’s  Food Safety and Inspection Service as well as Perdue Foods received consumer complaints.

    A Class I recall is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.
