The chicken products, which are fully cooked, were produced on March 21 and could contain bone material, the USDA announced in a press release on Friday. They were shipped nationwide.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the products. The problem was discovered after the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service and Perdue Chicken received complaints, according to the USDA.
