More than 130,000 lbs of Foster Farms Chicken recalled


Time to check your freezers - around 131,880 pounds of Foster Farms frozen, ready-to-eat breaded chicken patty products have been recalled by the US Department of Agriculture. 

The issue is because of possible contamination with plastic. 

If you've purchased any five-pound bags of Foster Farms breaded chicken breast patties with rib meat. Check the "best by" date - if it says Feb 15, 2018 and you also have the establishment number "P-33901" inside the USDA mark of inspection are subject to recall.

Distribution centers in California, Arizona, Washington, Utah and Alaska all received shipments with the contaminated bags according to Kristen Booze from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. 

The problem with the contaminated meat was discovered after the firm received three customer complaints who reported pieces of clear, soft plastic, that originated from the establishment's packaging materials. 

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to people eating the breaded chicken. But, anyone who has any concerns should contact their health provider Booze said.

Questions about the recall are being directed to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Consumer Affairs hotline at (800) 338-8051.
