WASHINGTON – Suzannah’s Kitchen, Duluth, Ga., recalled approximately 35,800 lbs. of breaded chicken products on concerns they may contain pieces of plastic, according to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The nuggets and patties subject to recall were produced on March 15, 2012, and Sept. 6, 2011, respectively. These products were produced for a separate federally-inspected establishment and distributed to retail stores nationwide, according to FSIS.

Consumer complaints alerted the company to the problem. Consumers were finding pieces of plastic in the products. The plastic pieces may have come from the plastic bag the products were held in before production. No reports of injury or illness have been made in connection with the recalled products, FSIS said.

The products subject to recall include:

• Cases containing twelve (12), 12-oz cartons of "FREEBIRD FULLY COOKED CHICKEN NUGGETS," with an identifying case code of "6220" and use-by date of March 15, 2014, ink-jetted on each case and carton. These cases have a Julian code of "2075."

• Cases containing twelve (12), 12-oz cartons of "FREEBIRD FULLY COOKED GLUTEN FREE/SOY FREE CHICKEN PATTIES," with an identifying case code of "6244" and use-by date of September 6, 2013, ink-jetted on each case and carton. These cases have a Julian code of "1249."

• 10-lb bulk cases of "FULLY COOKED CHICKEN NUGGETS," with an identifying case code of "6221" and use-by date of March 15, 2014 ink-jetted on the case. These cases have a Julian code of "2075," and were shipped to a foodservice distributor in California for further distribution.
