The following products were recalled:

  • 8-oz. boxed packages containing approximately 18 pieces of “Applegate Naturals Chicken Nuggets” with Best Before Date 09/27/2016.

The products recalled also have the number P-2617 inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to retail distribution centers in Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Massachusettes, Pennsylvania, New York, and Texas.
