Nearly 40,000 Pounds of Foster Farms Chicken Recalled

David Fransen/

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Thursday that Foster Farms is recalling nearly 40,000 pounds of frozen, pre-cooked chicken products due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

Recalled are the frozen “Chicken Breast Grilled Strips” product that was produced on Aug. 5 at a Louisiana establishment and then shipped to retail warehouses in California, Texas, Utah, and Washington state.

The affected product packaging bears the establishment number “P-33901” as well as the Best by Date of Aug. 5, 2015.

“The problem was discovered during the company’s routine in-plant inspection,” said the FSIS in a statement. “While some of the product was set aside and held, the product subject to this recall was inadvertently shipped. FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products.”

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns, although those outside these groups can still be affected.

Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea. The infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature-delivery, or life-threatening infection of the newborn in pregnant women. The infection can be fatal in older adults and those with weaker immune systems. Those who experience flu-like symptoms within two months after eating the contaminated food should seek medical attention and mention the contaminated food.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact Teresa Lenz, Foster Farm Consumer Affairs Manager, at (800) 338-8051.

    This is it, I haven't bought Foster Farms In quite a while because in my opinion, the incidences of food recalls are too frequent. It is highly likely that I won't ever buy this brand again, period.
  3. Wasteful Farms says:
    40k pounds of chicken recalled? what a waste - not only were the chickens living in abusive conditions, they were killed inhumanely, all in the name of making sure poor fat people can feed their poor fat faces, and poor fat children. but now all that meat is worthless. when you consider that a half pound of meat comes from a chicken - can you figure out how many chickens were killed?

    how many gubment subsidies is foster farms getting to feed poor fat government subsidized people?

    what kind of incompetent, mouth breathing, knuckle dragging, children breeding, retards are working, managing, and supplying foster farms?

    Could foster farms make it anymore stinkier in Turlock??

    people shouldnt eat this chicken. they recalled it because they ship it to china to process since its cheaper and then it becomes infected due to cheap labor and no standards.

    As a foster farms employee I laugh at a couple of these comments. You guys have no idea what you are talking about. If you feel so strongly about processing plants then buy your own animals and kill them yourselfs. As for diseases, all animals carry them. COOK your food properly. Send it to china; REALLY LOL

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
