Perdue chicken recall: 500 pounds of mislabeled frozen chicken recalled for undeclared allergens

About 500 pounds of frozen chicken are being recalled due to the packages being misbranded and having undeclared allergens, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

FSIS said the Perdue Foods product contained wheat, which was not declared on the label.

The frozen chicken products were labeled as gluten-free chicken breast tenders, but in fact contain chicken nuggets, the recall notice said.

The affected products are 22-ounce resealable plastic bags containing "Simply Smart Organics CHICKEN BREAST TENDERS GLUTEN FREE" with "Best By: 08 29 20," UPC Bar Code: 0-72745-80489-2, and time stamps of 00:30 to 1:00.

FSIS said the products were shipped to stores in Pennsylvania, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Ohio.
