Perdue Farms recalls chicken nuggets

By Washington Post editors

Georgia-based Perdue Farms has voluntarily recalled almost 92,000 pounds of frozen chicken nuggets out of concern that they might contain plastic, the News Messenger reports.

The chicken product, Great Value Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets, is sold at Wal-mart stores nationwide.

“The company discovered small pieces of blue plastic after receiving consumer complaints,” the U.S. Agriculture Department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service reported in a release. “[Food Safety] has not received any reports of injury at this time. Anyone concerned about an injury from consumption of this product should contact a physician.”

I feel sorry for anyone who has to eat something called a "nugget." Perdue chicken is full of antibiotics and steroids. Those aren't chickens, those are frakenfood that cause you to die early. Hopefully WaPo won't scrub my comments.
