If you’ve bought a particular frozen dinner for your children at any point this year, they run the risk of severe injury, or even death. Before pulling a children’s frozen dinner out of the freezer and into the microwave, you might want to read on after what the company claims to be an “accident.”
A recall of children’s frozen dinners has been issued due to a high health risk, according to the Department of Agriculture.
Three different brands of chicken nugget dinners have been recalled, because of instances of bone pieces being found in the chicken. Photos of the dinner packages are included below for easy reference, as the dinners come in both standard and special “Despicable Me” packaging. Both standard retail packaging and bulk packaging of the dinners are included in the chicken nugget recall.
The US Dept. of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall Saturday, because Overhill Farms Inc. received consumer complaints involving bone found in the product.
The frozen chicken bites were produced on Aug. 30, 2016, Feb. 1, 2017, Feb. 9, 2017 and April 25, 2017 and were distributed nationwide.
