Frozen Chicken Recall In New York State Due To Contamination
This is getting out of hand. Every day I read about yet another food recall. Are the people who supposedly check our food for safety doing their jobs? Perdue has issued a recall for frozen chicken tenders due to foreign material contamination. It's getting exhausting to constantly have to check our groceries for one reason or another. At this point, it seems like the only thing safe to consume is wine...but I digress.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service issued a public health alert for Perdue’s frozen ready-to-eat chicken breast tenders “gluten free” on Teusday, August 23, 2022. The tenders may be contaminated with small pieces of clear plastic and blue dye. While the product is no longer available for purchase, consumers may still have it in their freezers.

I hope that these food producers and the USDA can get it together. I'm sick of wondering how many items in my shopping cart might poison me from some contaminate or bacteria.
