Food safety alert: Chicken nuggets recalled for possible metal contamination
USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has issued a health alert to notify the public of a recall involving approximately 103, 752 pounds of chicken nugget products. Produced by Maxi Canada, Inc., a Québec, Canada, food manufacturer, the recall was issued because the products may be contaminated with metal pieces. FSIS says the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) notified US food safety officials about the recall since the affected products were exported to the United States.
The chicken nuggets were imported to the US between July 30, 2015 and March 5 and shipped nationwide to retailers such as Kroger, Wal-Mart, and Safeway.
According to FSIS, the problem was discovered when a consumer from the US complained to Maxi Canada, Inc. of a foreign object in the product. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness potentially associated with the recalled product should contact a health care provider.
