Perdue Foods and the USDA have recalled 68,244 pounds of frozen, fully-cooked organic gluten-free chicken nuggets that may contain wood.

The recall is isolated to Perdue Simply Smart Organics brand Gluten Free chicken breast nuggets after customers called in saying they found pieces of wood in the chicken.

The nuggets were produced in October 2018 with a "Best If Used By Date" of Oct. 25, 2019 and UPC product bar code of 72745-80656. The package also lists an Establishment number of "P-33944."

There have been no reports of injury associated with the product. 

“After a thorough investigation, we strongly believe this to be an isolated incident, as only a minimal amount of these packages has the potential to contain pieces of wood," said Jeff Shaw, Perdue's Vice President for Quality Assurance.

"Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to recall all packages of PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® Organics Gluten Free Chicken Breast Nuggets produced during the same product run."

Anyone who purchased the chicken nuggets is encouraged to throw them away and contact Perdue Foods at 877-727-3447 for a full refund.
