Foster Farms frozen chicken patties sold at Costco recalled for possible plastic contamination

Food

Foster Farms is recalling approximately 140,000 pounds of frozen chicken patties sold at Costco for possible plastic contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced.

The department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Saturday the 80-ounce bags of breaded chicken breast patties with rib meat are being recalled because they may have “hard clear pieces of plastic.” The recall is a Class I high or medium risk, meaning it is a “health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.”

The chicken patties were sent to Costco distribution centers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Utah, and Washington, but they may have been distributed to Costco retail locations nationwide.

The affected products were produced on Aug. 11 and have a best by date of Aug. 11, 2023. The bags have the establishment number P-33901 and lot code 3*2223 on the back edge, and 7527899724 under the barcode.

The FSIS said it received consumer complaints of the hard, clear plastic in the fully cooked patties. No injuries associated with consuming the patties have been reported, but officials believe the pieces could be sharp and cause an injury.

Costco does not have the product listed on its product recalls page. USA TODAY has reached out to Costco for comment.
