King’s Delight of Georgia is recalling 1,572 pounds of frozen chicken nuggets labeled as gluten-free because they contain wheat.
The product is 8 ounce cartons of “APPLEGATE® Naturals Gluten-Free Chicken Nuggets.” The nuggets were packaged on September 19, 2012. The establishment number “P-2617″ is found on the side of each carton. The lot number is 210864 and best before date is 8/28/13. The UPC number is 25317-00556 printed on the back of each carton. They were sold in Indiana, Maryland, Oregon, and Washington. The firm notified FSIS of the problem when a consumer familiar with the product noted a color difference.
If you purchased this product and are allergic to gluten or have celiac disease, return it to the place of purchase for a refund. For questions, call Gerry Clarkson, Applegate Consumer Affairs Specialist, at 800-587-5858.
