15K pounds of chicken nuggets with plastic pieces recalled

Over 15,000 pounds of chicken nuggets sold in U.S. markets are being recalled due to plastic pieces found in the meat, a Fox 43 article stated on August 14.

The recall affects the 8oz boxes of Applegate “Naturals” chicken nuggets that can be bought at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods Markets, as well as other retailers across the country. The recall was issued after consumers complained that there were ‘plastic bits’ inside the meat of the chicken nuggets. Applegate explained that one of the plastic containers used to store their raw chicken accidentally mixed with the chicken that was ready for grinding. The U.S. Department of Agriculture stated that there were no reports of illness from the potentially contaminated nuggets. Applegate has already removed the affected products from stores.
