Perdue is recalling 500 pounds of the Simply Smart Organics frozen chicken due to mislabeled packaging according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The FSIS notice says the product contains wheat which has been omitted from the label ingredients. Instead, the frozen chicken products are labeled as gluten-free chicken breast tenders, but in fact contain chicken nuggets.
Here are the product details of the recalled items:
- 22-ounce resealable plastic bags containing “Simply Smart Organics CHICKEN BREAST TENDERS GLUTEN FREE” with “Best By: 08 29 20,” UPC Bar Code: 0-72745-80489-2, and time stamps of 00:30 to 1:00.
FSIS says the products were shipped to stores in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina. There are no reported reactions due to the oversight.
Consumers should discard the product or return it to the store of purchase for a refund.
