The USDA and Perdue have issued a recall for more than 90,000 pounds of Great Value frozen chicken nuggets — all of it shipped to Walmart stores — because there is a possibility that the food could contain “foreign materials.”
According to the USDA’s Food Safety & Inspection Service:
The company discovered small pieces of blue plastic after receiving consumer complaints. FSIS has not received any reports of injury at this time. Anyone concerned about an injury from consumption of this product should contact a physician.
The products include the 1 pound, 13-ounce bag of “GREAT VALUE Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets.” The bags are labeled with the establishment number “P-33944,” and a product code of “89008 A0160.” The “BEST IF USED BY” date is June 9, 2011.
As mentioned above, all the potentially tainted product was shipped to Walmart. A rep for the retail giant had this to say:
We are telling consumers to use an abundance of caution… Walmart distributes these nationwide so we don’t know where these products could have gone.
