Livingston-based Foster Farms is recalling more than 130,000 pounds of frozen chicken patties that may be contaminated with plastic.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service made the announcement Thursday on 5-pound bags containing 20 ready-to-eat breaded chicken patties produced on Feb. 15 at a Foster Farms plant in Farmerville, Louisiana.
The products subject to recall bear an establishment number “P-33901” inside the USDA inspection marks. They were shipped to distribution centers in Alaska, Arizona, California, Utah and Washington.
The problem was discovered after three consumer complaints on March 22, April 3 and April 15. The foreign materials were pieces of clear, soft plastic that originated from packaging materials. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of the products.
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.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Consumer Affairs at 800-338-8051.
