Foster Farms, a Farmerville, La. establishment, is recalling approximately 148,000 pounds of fully cooked frozen chicken breast patty products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials.
Specifically hard clear pieces of plastic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) reported Saturday.
According to FSIS officials, the fully cooked, frozen, breaded chicken breast patties were produced on Aug. 11, 2022.
The following products are subject to recall:
- 80-oz. plastic bag packages containing 20 pieces of “CHICKEN PATTIES BREADED CHICKEN BREAST PATTIES WITH RIB MEAT” with best by date “08/11/23,” establishment number “P-33901,” and lot code “3*2223**” in inkjet print on the back edge of the packaging as well as “7527899724” under the barcode.
FSIS officials said these items were shipped to Costco distribution centers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Utah, and Washington, and may have been further distributed to Costco retail locations around the country.
The problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS that it received consumer complaints reporting hard, clear plastic embedded in fully cooked, frozen, breaded chicken breast patty products with a best-by date of Aug. 11, 2023.
According to FSIS officials, there have been no confirmed reports of injury associated with the consumption of this product, but FSIS believes the hard plastic pieces could be sharp and possibly cause an injury.
Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some products may be in consumers’ freezers.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them and retailers are advised not to sell them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
