Perdue Recalls Chicken Over Allergen Concerns
Over 400 pounds of Perdue chicken has been recalled.
Fox Business reports that Perdue Foods has recalled 495 pounds of frozen ready-to-eat chicken due to allergens. The packaging says the breaded chicken breast tenders are gluten-free, but they contain wheat. Wheat is a known gluten allergen.
According to Fox Business, Perdue said in a statement “The affected product was produced with the wrong packaging label and an incorrect ingredient statement that did not have a wheat allergen declared on the package."
Two customers filed a complaint with Perdue about the incorrect labeling and notified FSIS. According to Fox Business, no reports of illness or adverse reactions to the recalled chicken have been made. Roughly 330 22-ounce bags of “Perdue Simply Smart Organics Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders” have been affected by this recall. The chicken was produced on August 30, 2019.
If you have purchased the chicken, Perdue advises you to contact them for a full refund, as reported by Fox Business.
