A labeling mistake has led to the recall of 16,011 pounds of Perdue Fun Shapes Chicken Breast Nuggets as a potential food allergy danger.
According to the USDA-written recall notice, a retail store told Perdue Foods that the chicken nuggets had the wrong back label. That label declared the product had one allergen, wheat, but didn’t say the nuggets also included milk.
That’s a major problem for those who have milk allergies and those who feed those who have milk allergies.

So, 12-ounce bags with a use by date of March 11, 2019, and lot Nos. 17009010 to 19009010 have been recalled. They have establishment number “P-369” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
They went to retail stores in Connecticut; Delaware; Washington, D.C.; Maine; Maryland; Massachusetts; New Jersey; New York; Ohio, Pennsylvania; Rhode Island; Vermont; Virginia; and West Virginia.
The nuggets were made Jan. 10, so some might already be in home freezers.
Consumers without a milk allergy should be fine. Those with milk allergies should throw them out or return them to the store for a full refund.
