Perdue Recalls Nuggets; May Contain Plastic

Great Value Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets Class II Recall

Perdue Farms Inc. is recalling thousands of pounds of frozen chicken nugget products officials say could contain foreign materials.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Monday that the products include 1-pound, 13-ounce bags of "GREAT VALUE Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets."

Officials are recalling approximately 91,872 pounds of the nuggets after the privately held company discovered small pieces of blue plastic following consumer complaints.

The nuggets are sold in Wal-Mart stores nationwide.

Agriculture authorities have not gotten any reports of injuries.

Each bag bears the establishment number P-33944 as well as a case code of 89008 A0160.
