The 12,610 pounds of chicken nuggets may have been processed in a way that could allow the survival of bacterial pathogens, according to the recall notice posted Tuesday by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

Affected products include:

  • Waffle Breaded Bites: Fully Cooked Breaded White Meat Chicken Bites
  • Packaged in cases with two clear plastic 5-pound bags each
  • Establishment number “P-20214” (found inside the USDA mark of inspection)

These products were packaged on Dec. 1, 13 and 30, 2016, and shipped to Food Lion stores in the following states: 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,” the recall notice said. “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.”

To date, no injuries or illnesses have been associated with this recall.
