Perdue Inc., the makers of Applegate Naturals Chicken Nuggets, has recalled 8-ounce packages of the product with the "best before" date of Sept. 27, 2016, due to possible plastic contamination.
According to Applegate, there may be "small pieces of plastic" in the product, though no injuries or illnesses have been reported at this time.
The products were shipped to stores in Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Florida, Indiana, Georgia and Texas.
Applegate says it is investigating the situation and has been able to isolate the incident to the final stages of mixing and producing the product.
