Foster Farms recalls chicken breast strips
by Meat&Poultry Staff
WASHINGTON – Foster Farms recalled approximately 6,165 lbs. of ready-to-eat grilled chicken breast strips because they contain known allergens — wheat and soy — that are not declared on the product label, the USDA's Food Safety Inspection Service reported May 21.
A customer complaint revealed the problem, which occurred because Foster Farms inadvertently used labels for another chicken product it produces that does not contain wheat or soy. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions associated with consumption of these products.
The products subject to recall include 4.5-lb. cases containing 12, 6-oz. trays of "Foster Farms Grilled Chicken Breast Strips Boneless & Skinless With Rib Meat 97% Fat Free," with an identifying case code of "000606."
The recalled product bears the establishment number "P-20923" inside the USDA mark of inspection and a use-by date of "JUN 22 2013" printed on each tray. The product was produced on April 23, 2013, and was distributed to retail establishments in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
