Perdue Foods is voluntarily recalling more than 16,000 pounds (approximately 21,348 packages) of Fun Shapes Refrigerated Chicken Breast Nuggets.

The poultry company announced on Monday that the dinosaur-shaped nuggets were not packaged with the proper back panel label and have “an incorrect ingredient statement that did not have the milk allergen declared on the package.”

“After receiving a customer inquiry, we conducted a comprehensive investigation and have isolated this to an error during a specific time frame of the production run of Perdue Fun Shapes Refrigerated Chicken Breast Nuggets,” says Jeff Shaw, Perdue’s vice president for quality assurance.

Although customers may also have frozen, fully-cooked chicken nuggets in their fridge, the recall only affects packages sold in the refrigerated case.RELATED VIDEO: Everything Stars Have Said About The Keto Diet
