Foster Farms Recalls Chicken

Dozens of Foster Farms chicken products have been recalled because of a salmonella contamination.
Dozens of Foster Farms chicken products have been recalled because of a salmonella contamination. They were produced in Central Valley plants including Fresno.

The products where produced on March 8, 10, and 11. The recall products have an establishment number "P6137," P6137A" or "P7632" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The chicken products would have "use or freeze by" dates ranging from March 21st to March 29th.

The Food Safety and Inspection service says the chicken is likely not being sold in stores anymore, but could be in consumers freezers.

"I wouldn't feed it to my kid but I would risk it. It happens all the time," Alyson Malang, a consumer said.

The chicken was sold in stores like Costco, Foodmaxx as well as other retail stores. One person in California became sick in May.

In a Statement Foster Farms says "Our first concern is always the health and safety of the people who enjoy our products." The company voluntarily complied with the recall.

Last year a salmonella contamination sickened hundreds of people across the country. It was only now that the FSIS was able to link the illness to a specific product.

"With my large family I'm looking for the deals. And Foster Farms is a good brand. So I feel safe they can fix this," Joe Reyes, a shopper says.

FSIS reminds consumers to properly handle raw poultry. And rely on the final temperature not cook times. Cooked chicken should be at least 165 degrees for safety.
