Perdue Foods is recalling more than 31,000 pounds of chicken as federal inspectors say certain product lines of chicken patties, nuggets and tenders may contain bone material.

In a news release, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service wrote the company is recalling about 31,703 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products because they “may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically pieces of bone material.”
