Perdue Foods is recalling thousands of pounds of chicken nuggets that may contain pieces of wood.

The company issued a voluntary recall on Thursday for 68,244 pounds, or approximately 49,632 bags of Perdue Simply Smart Organics frozen, fully cooked organic gluten free chicken breast nuggets.

Perdue says the recall is isolated to that brand only and sold in 22-ounce bags.

The affected items were produced in October 2018 with a "Best if Used By Date" of 10/25/2019 and UPC product bar code 72745-80656.

The company says there have been no reports of injury assocated with the product.

“After a thorough investigation, we strongly believe this to be an isolated incident, as only a minimal amount of these packages has the potential to contain pieces of wood. Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to recall all packages of PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® Organics Gluten Free Chicken Breast Nuggets produced during the same product run,” said Jeff Shaw, Perdue's Vice President for Quality Assurance.

If you have any of the affected product, do not eat it. Contact Perdue Foods at 877-727-3447 for a full refund of your purchase.
