GFCO has learned that, prior to August 8, 2019, Farm Girl Club was using GFCO’s certification mark on their Nut Based Keto Bread Roll Mix, which is not certified gluten-free by GFCO. To our knowledge, Farm Girl Club has ceased using the certification mark on this product, however, if you purchased Farm Girl Club products prior to August 8, 2019,  the non-GFCO-certified product may incorrectly bear a GFCO certification mark. This product may be safe for consumption by gluten-free consumers, however consumers need to make that decision based on label reading and other means as necessary. You can refer to GIG’s bulletin for tips on reading labels.

Perdue Foods is recalling 68,244 pounds of gluten-free chicken nuggets sold nationwide over fears of wood contamination, federal health officials say. The ready-to-eat chicken nuggets were produced on Oct. 25, 2018, according to the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The nuggets are gluten-free and have an expiration date of Oct. 25, 2019, and UPC Bar Code “72745-80656” on the label.  They were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

There have been no confirmed reports of illness due to consumption of the products. Federal health officials say some products may be in consumers’ freezers, and warned people to throw them away or return them to the seller. Perdue described it as an isolated incident, saying only a “minimal amount” of packages may contain pieces of wood. It said it’s recalling nuggets produced during the same product run out of an abundance of caution.
