PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Food company Foster Farms is recalling almost 150,000 pounds of fully cooked frozen chicken breast patties due to possible contamination.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) reported that the patties may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically hard clear pieces of plastic.
The chicken packages in question were produced on Aug. 11, 2022, and shipped to Costco distribution centers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Utah, and Washington.
Customer complaints were reported claiming that the pieces of plastic were embedded in the breaded chicken patties. There were no confirmed reports of injuries or illnesses, although FSIS believes the hard plastic pieces could be harmful and encourages that any of these products that were purchased be thrown away or returned immediately.
