The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following Chicken Products are subject to this recall:

Fresh and Frozen Chicken Products sold by retailers under Foster Farms or private label brand names, with varying use- or freeze-by dates ranging from March 16 to March 31, 2014 and August 29, 2015 to September 2, 2015, and frozen Sunland Chicken products with best-by dates from March 7 through March 11, 2015 and August 29, 2015 through September 2, 2015.

Other dates can be found on bulk master cases of products. The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “P6137,” P6137A” or “P7632” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The Chicken Products were produced from March 7 through March 13, 2014. These products were shipped to Costco, Foodmaxx, Kroger, Safeway and other retail stores and distribution centers in Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Utah and Washington.

According to the USDA, its Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) was notified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) of a Salmonella Heidelberg illness on June 23, 2014, associated with the consumption of a boneless skinless chicken breast product. Working in conjunction with CDC, FSIS determined that there is a link between boneless skinless chicken breast products from Foster Farms and this illness.
