Bits of plastic lead to Perdue nugget recall

By Julianne Pepitone, staff reporter

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Perdue Farms is recalling 91,872 pounds of frozen chicken nuggets because some of the products may contain pieces of plastic, the company said Tuesday.

Perdue said some of the "Great Value" brand nuggets sold at Wal-Mart stores in the United States could have been contaminated because a small blue plastic ring got into the raw material before the nuggets were formed.

The company said the recall represents an "abundance of caution."

The recalled products - 50,688 packages in total - have a "best if used by date" of June 9, 2011. On the back of the packages appears the numbers 89008A, 0160 and P-33944.

No other Great Value brand chicken, or any other Perdue products, are involved in the recall.

Customers can return the recalled products to Perdue for a full refund.  To top of page
