Less than two weeks after withdrawing Kirkland's Signature Pine Nut Hummus, Costco pulled another item for food safety reasons.
Foster Farms recalled 148,000 pounds of fully cooked frozen chicken breast patties sold at Costco. The action occurred after consumers noticed hard, transparent plastic fragments in the dish.
The contaminated items, created on August 11, 2022, were transported to Costco distribution facilities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Utah, and Washington, and may have reached other Costco stores.
80-ounce plastic bags with a "Best By" date of August 11, 2023, the establishment number "P-33901," the lot code "3*2223**," and the number "7527899724" under the barcode.
There have been no verified injuries linked to the chicken patties, but the hard plastic parts might be sharp and cause an injury.
Classifying the recall as "Class I – Medium or High Risk," the government urges customers to destroy the frozen chicken patties or return them to the store.
A recall notification is not yet accessible on Costco's product recall website. Call 1-800-338-8051 or contact email@example.com with questions regarding the recall.
Sadly, this isn't the only frozen food withdrawn this month. On October 7, ALDI recalled its Earth Grown Vegan Traditional Falafel and
Garlic & Herb Falafel items owing to suspected Shiga toxin-producing E.Coli. 20 instances of illness have been documented in six states, with five hospitalised.
