Over 100,000 lbs of Foster Farms chicken recalled

Approximately 131,880 pounds of Foster Farms frozen, ready-to-eat breaded chicken patty products were recalled today by the U.S. Department of Agriculture because of possible contamination with plastic.

The five-pound bags of Foster Farms breaded chicken breast patties with rib meat with a “best by” date of Feb. 15, 2018, and the establishment number “P-33901” inside the USDA mark of inspection are subject to the recall, according to Kristen Booze of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The bags were shipped to distribution centers in California, Arizona, Washington, Utah and Alaska, Booze said.

The problem was discovered when the firm received three consumer complaints on March 22, April 3 and April 15 reporting foreign materials in the chicken patty products, Booze said.

The foreign materials were pieces of clear, soft plastic that originated from the establishment’s packaging materials, Booze said.

The recall is a Class II recall, meaning it is a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a health care provider, Booze said.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase, Booze said.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact the U.S. Department of Agriculture Consumer Affairs hotline at (800) 338-8051.
