Perdue Foods has recalled about 31,703 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products because they may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of bone, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced in a news release.

The chicken products were made on March 21, 2019, and the items subject to recall include:

  • 11.2 oz. plastic trays containing Perdue Simply Smart Organics Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders—Gluten Free with a “use by May 20, 2019” and a UPC bar code of 072745-00143 on the label
  • 12 oz. plastic trays containing Perdue Simply Smart Organics Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets—Whole Grain with a “use by May 20, 2019” and UPC bar code of 072745-001642 on the label
  • 12 oz. plastic trays containing Perdue Simply Smart Organics Breaded Chicken Breast Strips—Whole Grain with a “use by May 20, 2019” and UPC bar code of 072745-002656 on the label
  • 10 lb. bulk boxes of Chef Quik Breaded Chicken Tenders Boneless Tender Shaped Chicken Breast Patties with Rib Meat with case code 22143 on the label
  • 10 lb. bulk boxes of Chef Quik Breast Strips Strip Shaped Breaded Chicken Breast Patties with Rib Meat with case code 77265 on the label

The products subject to recall have the establishment number “EST. P-369” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The items were shipped to retail locations nationwide because the problem was discovered after FSIS and the company received consumer complaints. At the time of this reporting, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these chicken products. Contact your doctor if you’re concerned your child may be at risk. You can also send your food safety questions to Ask Karen, the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours or via smartphone at m.askkaren.gov.
