Don't Play FreeBird! Frozen Chicken Nuggets, Patties Recalled



Finally, after almost six years of existence, Gut Check gets to make a "Free Bird" joke.

Suzanna's Kitchen of Duluth, Georgia, has announced a precautionary recall, via the USDA, of certain packages of FreeBird-brand frozen chicken nuggets and patties because they might contain pieces of plastic.

According to the USDA news release:

The problem was discovered as a result of consumer complaints about finding pieces of plastic in the products. The plastic pieces may have originated from the plastic bag the products were held in prior to production.

Specifically, the company is recalling twelve-ounce cartons of FreeBird Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets with the case code of 6220 and a use-by date of March 15, 2014; twelve-ounce cartons of FreeBird Fully Cooked Gluten Free/Soy Free Chicken Patties with a case code of 6244 and a use-by date of September 6, 2013; and ten-pound cases of the chicken nuggets with a case code of 6221 and a use-by date of March 15, 2014.

The products were distributed nationwide.
