If you buy frozen chicken at Costco Wholesale, check your freezer to see if it’s part of a new recall.
Foster Poultry Farms has recalled more than 130,000 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat breaded chicken patty products that may be contaminated with plastic.
Recall: Foster Farms breaded chicken breast patties
The recalled chicken was sold at a limited number of Costco locations in Alaska, Arizona, California, Utah and Washington. No other retailers are involved.
These patties were sold in five-pound bags with the establishment number P-33901 and a “best buy” date of 02/15/18 printed on the front of the package.
Here’s a picture provided by Foster Farms:
This recall was issued after three people reported finding clear, soft plastic in the chicken patty products. The plastic originated from the manufacturer’s packaging materials.
Foster Farms released the following statement:
