Check your freezers. The USDA announced a recall of Foster Farms ready-to-eat chicken patties because of possible contamination, more specifically plastic. The five-pound bags containing 20 pieces of “Foster Farms Chicken Patties Breaded Chicken Breast Patties With Rib Meat” with Best By date of 02/15/18 is the only recalled product so far.
The problem was discovered when the firm received three consumer complaints on March 22, April 3, and April 15, 2017 reporting foreign materials in the chicken patty products. The foreign materials were pieces of clear, soft plastic that originated from the establishment’s packaging materials.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
