On Wednesday, August 8, Applegate Natural and Organic Meats voluntarily issued a recall for “Applegate Naturals Chicken Nuggets” with the “Best Before” date of February 5, 2015, according to a report by United Press International.
More than 15,000 pounds were yanked from shelves due to small pieces of clear plastic that inadvertently became mixed into the meat. The contaminated chicken nuggets are manufactured by Perdue, a Georgia-based company hired by Applegate to help “co-pack” their products.
Consumers are urged to check for products with an expiration date of 2/05/2015 and the establishment number “P2617.” More than 30,000 packages of the product were sold across the United States, including at Whole Foods, Safeway, Giant and other local and regional grocers.
