Were you thinking about grabbing some frozen nuggets for an easy meal tonight? Not so fast. Check the box first because Perdue Farms has voluntarily recalled 91,872 of their fully cooked, frozen chicken nuggets sold under the Great Value brand. The Great Value brand products are sold at Walmart stores around the country.
Why the recall? Inspection (conducted after they received consumer complaints) found that pieces of bright blue plastic made their way into the raw mix before the nuggets were formed. Although it affected a "minimal" number of packages according to the company, all 50,688 packages produced in the run have been recalled.
What to look for: 1 pound, 13 oz bags of Great Value branded chicken nuggets with a "Best If Used By Date" of June 9, 2011. The case code "89008 A0160" is printed on the back of the packaging. The affected packages also have the Establishment number "P-33944".
If you find a package of the affected nuggets in the freezer they can be returned to the store for a full refund.
