The problem was discovered when the establishment received consumer complaints of extraneous material in purchased Panko Chicken Nugget products. The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS) was notified on Jan. 29, 2019.

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

FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. 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.
