Foster Farms Recalls Chicken Breast Patties


A recall of 70 tons of cooked frozen chicken breast patties was implemented by Foster Farms.  Product was prepared in the Farmerville, LA., plant operated by the company.  The recall was due to the potential presence of plastic fragments as reported by consumers.  Product was processed on August 11th and shipped to Costco distribution centers in five western states.


During the past three years, there have been extensive recalls of chicken and red meat products contaminated with plastic, presumably from damaged or deteriorated components of processing machinery.  Enhanced inspection and regular maintenance are obviously required to avert recalls and degradation of brand and company image.
