Over 31,700 pounds of chicken products are being recalled by Perdue Foods, as per USDA’s FSIS statement. It is suspected that bone material pieces may have found their way into them. These products are ready to be eaten instantly.
These items had been cooked on Mar 21, and had been shipped across the country, said FSIS. However, the FSIS did state that no adverse reactions have been reported to the consumption of these products.
The affected products had the code ‘EST P-369’ written inside the inspection mark of the USDA on the product label. Customer complaints were a crucial aid in discovering this problem.
11.2 oz, gluten-free breast tenders, 12 oz, whole grain breast nuggets, and whole grain breast strips were recalled by the company.

Perdue VP Jeff Shaw stated that, in line with the company’s policy of providing chicken of the best quality, all pieces from this production run would be recalled.
Tyson Foods had to recall nearly 12 million chicken strips after consumers complained of finding metal in their meals. This had caused them an injury due to the metal pieces, in the mouth. Three out of 6 complaints had listed pieces of the metal as their complaint, which triggered this recall. Perdue Foods also had to recall over 68,000 nuggets last month after fears spread about wood contamination. This was done on a nationwide basis.
