Foster Farms is recalling nearly 148,000 pounds of chicken sold at Costco warehouse stores after some customers found pieces of hard, clear plastic in their frozen meat, federal inspectors said.
The fully cooked, breaded chicken breast patties are sold frozen in 80-ounce plastic bags. The products were produced Aug. 11 and the bags include a “best by” date of Aug. 11, 2023, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a statement Saturday.
The possibly contaminated chicken patties were shipped to Costco distribution centers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Utah and Washington and could have been sent to Costco retail warehouses, authorities said.
The federal government is concerned that some of the contaminated meat is already in people’s freezers and is urging consumers not to eat the chicken. The product should be thrown away or returned to where it was purchased. There are no reports of any injuries, but the USDA said the products could cause injury if eaten.
