On Monday, Jan. 28, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced a recall of one of your child’s favorite foods — chicken nuggets. According to the USDA’s notice, Purdue is recalling just over 16,000 POUNDS OF KIDS’ CHICKEN NUGGETS due to “undeclared allergens” and other misrepresentations of ingredients.
Any time a recall is issued on food, it’s best practice to dispose of any product you have that could be affected. In this case, PERDUE IS RECALLING THE PRODUCTS because the chicken nuggets contain milk, something the USDA calls a “known allergen,” and it’s not declared on the product label.
Right now, the affected packages are the 12 oz. of “PERDUE FUN SHAPES CHICKEN BREAST NUGGETS” with a use-by date of March 11, 2019, and lot codes 17009010 – 19009010. The products have an establishment number “P-369” INSIDE THE USDA MARK OF INSPECTION.
