Foster Farms Recalls Breaded Chicken Breast Patties

03 May 2017

US - Foster Farms is initiating a voluntary Class II recall of select packages of its Frozen Cooked Breaded Chicken Breast Patties with Rib Meat sold at a limited number of Costco club stores.

This is due to the possible presence of foreign material – clear, flexible plastic – in the breaded chicken patty. No reports of illness or injury have been associated with this product. No other Foster Farms products are involved.

This recall is limited to Foster Farms Frozen Cooked Breaded Chicken Breast Patties with Rib Meat sold in 5-pound re-sealable club-size bags and distributed to some Costco depots in Alaska, Arizona, California, Utah and Washington. In total 3,297 cases were distributed. No other retailers are involved.

The Frozen Cooked Breaded Chicken Breast Patties with Rib Meat subject to recall lists the following plant code and date on the front of the package: 5-lb re-sealable retail bags listing plant code P-33901 and “Best By” date of 2-15-18

Consumers who have purchased the recalled chicken patties should not consume them. Recalled products should be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Foster Farms discovered this issue through consumer product feedback. The company isolated the issue to one specific production line on one production date at the Farmerville facility. Procedures were promptly reviewed with employees to prevent reoccurrence.

Food safety is, and has always been, Foster Farms' top priority.

"We are vigilant in employing the most up-to-date safety measures to produce wholesome, healthy and delicious food products. Foster Farms maintains a Food Safety Advisory Board comprising leading national food safety experts to validate best practices, evaluate emerging technologies and to help guide the company’s food safety systems for fresh and frozen products on an ongoing basis," says Foster Farms.
