On May 31, Perdue Foods recalled 31,703 pounds of chicken, including refrigerated, fully cooked gluten-free breaded organic chicken tenders under the PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® Organics brand.
According to Perdue Foods, these chicken tenders were recalled “because of the potential that the product may contain pieces of bone.”
All of the SIMPLY SMART® items, including the gluten-free chick tenders, are no longer in stores and are past their use-by date of May 20, 2019.
The gluten-free product recalled is the PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® Organics Refrigerated Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders. These items were produced in March 2019 with a “Best If Used By Date” of 5/20/2019 and UPC product bar code of 072745-001437. Click here for more information on the recalled chicken.
