Foster Farms issues recall related to Salmonella contamination

On July 3, Foster Farms, in cooperation with the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, initiated a voluntary Class I recall of fresh chicken products sold under the Foster Farms or private-label brand names produced in March with varying “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 on fears of a 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 today plus individually frozen bags of chicken sold at retail are not involved. The company stated this recall was prompted by one illness associated with a specific fresh chicken product; and that the company decided to expand the recall to include all products packaged at that time to ensure food safety.
