Foster Farms Issues Voluntary Recall of Chicken with Select March 'Use or Freeze By' or 'Best By' Dates

In cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Foster Farms is initiating a voluntary Class I recall of chicken products produced in March with 'use or freeze by' dates ranging from March 21, 2014 to March 29, 2014 and very limited frozen Sunland chicken products, due to the potential presence of Salmonella Heidelberg. Only products made in California within this specific March timeframe and with plant codes of P-6137, P-6137A and P-7632 are involved. Fresh Foster Farms branded chicken products in grocery stores currently are not involved. Individually frozen bags of chicken sold at retail are not involved. Products were sold under the Foster Farms and private label brand names. This recall is prompted by a single illness associated with 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. This voluntary recall involves chicken produced during select March dates at Foster Farms' California facilities. These products were distributed in the following states: California, Hawaii, Washington, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, Oregon and Alaska. Retail customers have been notified. Consumers are advised to discard or return affected product to the place of purchase. 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 21 to March 29, 2014, and a Plant code of P-6137, P-6137A or P-7632; Sunland Frozen Chicken with 'best by' dates of March 7, 2015, March 11, 2015 or March 25, 2015.
