Foster Farms recalls chicken due to Salmonella

July 8, 2014

Foster Farms has issued a recall on some of their chicken because of a salmonella risk.

The recall comes after a request from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The recall includes products with a “use or freeze by” dates ranging from March 16, 2014 to March 31, 2014 and Sunland frozen chicken products that have a “best by” date of March 7, 2015 to March 11, 2015. Only products made in California within that specific timeframe are impacted.

Individually frozen bags of chicken sold at retail and Fresh Foster Farms branded chicken currently in stores are also not involved, and local grocery stores have been notified to remove any product that might be impacted.

Products recalled:

  • Fresh chicken products sold by retailers under Foster Farms or private label brand names, with varying “use or freeze by” date ranges of March 16 to March 31, 2014, and a Plant code of P-6137, P-6137A or P-7632
  • Sunland Frozen Chicken products with “best by” dates from March 7, 2015 to March 11, 2015

Individually frozen bags of chicken sold at retail and Fresh Foster Farms branded chicken currently in stores are also not involved, and local grocery stores have been notified to remove any product that might be impacted.

“This recall is prompted by a single illness associated with a specific fresh chicken product, but in the fullest interest of food safety, Foster Farms has broadened the recall to encompass all products packaged at that time. Foster Farms regrets any illness associated with its products.”

The recall involves products that were distributed in Washington, and throughout the Western US. Foster Farms advised consumers to discard or return affected product to where they purchased it.
