WASHINGTON, Jan. 17, 2019 - Perdue Foods, LLC, a Perry, Ga. establishment, is recalling approximately 68,244 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken nugget products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically wood, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
