Nuggets are like…THE go to snack for kiddos everywhere…and now we have to worry about them! I definitely have some in my refrigerator too!
Perdue Foods announced a voluntary recall of close to 70,000 pounds of frozen, gluten-free nuggets on Thursday, amid concerns they may contain wood. Sure, gluten-free food may taste a bit like cardboard, but wood? That’s a new one.
Per the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), Perdue issued the recall after three people complained they found bits of wood in their nuggets. Yuck. FSIS received a single such complaint as well, but hasn’t received any confirmed reports of injury from anyone consuming the wood-tainted nuggets so… that’s good news, we guess.
I mean…is NOTHING sacred anymore? Wood tainted nuggets…SMH.
