Waffle Breaded chicken nuggets recalled due to bacteria

Consumer concerns have prompted Wayne Farms LLC to recall 12,610 pounds of ready-to-eat “Waffle Breaded Bites” chicken nuggets. Food Lion stores carry the product in 10 states, including North and South Carolina.

The six tons of the ready-to-eat chicken product may have been subject to a processing problem that can allow the survival of bacterial pathogens, according to the recall notice posted on the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service website.

The ready-to-eat breaded chicken bite items were packaged on Dec. 1, 13 and 30, 2016. The following products are subject to recall: Cases of two clear plastic 5-lb. bags of “Waffle Breaded Bites: Fully Cooked Breaded White Meat Chicken Bites.”

The products subject to recall bear establishment number P-20214 inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to Food Lion stores in Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

The problem was discovered when the firm received a customer complaint that the product looked undercooked. 

There have been no confirmed reports of illness or injury due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.  

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

In November 2016, Wayne Farms LLC recalled approximately 4,059 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products due to undercooking, resulting in the potential survival of bacterial pathogens in the products.
