Perdue Simply Smart Gluten Free Nuggets which is part of the recall

Knock on wood that your nuggets aren’t affected!

Perdue Foods has voluntarily recalled over 68,000 pounds (almost 50,000 bags!) of Perdue Simply Smart Organics Gluten Free frozen chicken breast nuggets because of the potential that some packages may contain pieces of wood.

Note that the recall is isolated to only the Perdue Simply Smart Organics Gluten Free chicken breast nuggets. These items were produced in October of 2018 with a “Best If Used By Date” of 10/25/2019 and UPC product bar code of 72745-80656. The package also lists an establishment number of “P-33944.”

    How does that even happen 🤔

      I was curious about this and have done some research. It appears cellulose is what you will see on a label when they are describing what is supposed to be more like sawdust/wood pulp. This additive shockingly (at least shocking to me) has been added to our food since the 1700s. Who knew!

      • heather

        Yup. Ive actually came across pieces of wood in the kroger instant oatmeal packages. I don’t buy it anymore.

    • annie

      What must have happened is the wood did not get ground down to a fine enough powder.

  2. Diana

    Added fiber?

    • hellfiregainz

      Correct

  3. Joanna

    Omg…what the heck?! That’s insane! 😔😩😷

  4. Sarah

    Gross! That’s just wrong.

  5. MommaNguyen

    I’d rather eat trees(sawdust) than a lot of the chemicals they add to processed foods.

  6. kerRI

    It was so confusing to me when i read this online. I said wood ?? 🤔

  7. Kristy

    Just finished a package of these today. Oh well 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • Kristy

      Curiosity got the best of me- had to check. Luckily not one of the affected ones!

    on another note, these are the best gluten free chicken nugget products around..my daughter has celiac and these are probably her favorite gluten free item…however the only place i could buy them before was target and our target has stopped selling them…does anyone know where to get these in the lakewood/tacoma washington area…we don’t mind more wood fiber 🙂

    • duh

      I get mine at walmart or bj’s

    • Ashley

      I love this response, “we don’t mind more wood fiber”. It just makes me think of, “God made dirt, dirt don’t hurt”. Thank you!!<3

    Dont freak out and start boycotting cellulose. Its necessary fiber that your diet needs.

    Although most must b hating Perdue right now, I’m grateful they are honest to do a voluntary recall n take responsibility. They want to take care of their customers even if it means they will lose some. I’ll still buy Perdue (or whatever else is on sale). I don’t mind the wood fiber either n agree that I’d rather consume that than the chemicals.
