Foster Farms Recalls Frozen Chicken Strips for Listeria

Foster Farms ListeriaFoster Farms is recalling approximately 39,747 pounds of frozen, pre-cooked chicken strips for possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. The frozen Chicken Breast Grilled Strips product was produced August 5, 2014, and then shipped to retail warehouse locations in California, Texas, Utah, and Washington.

The recalled product, Chicken Breast Grilled Strips, was sold in 3.5-lb. plastic resealable bags in freezer areas.  The affected product has the establishment number P-33901 and the “Best By” date of 08-05-15.

The problem was discovered during a routine inspection. Some of the product was set aside and held, but some was inadvertently shipped.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety Inspection Service (USDA FSIS) and Foster Farms have not received reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products. But consumers who have purchased them should not eat them as  Listeria can cause serious illness and death. Children, elderly people and immune-compromised individuals including pregnant women are at high risk. Among pregnant women, Listeria can cause miscarriage or stillbirth.

Symptoms of a Listeria infection, called listeriosis, can take as long as two months to develop. They include fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck and confusion. Sometimes those symptoms are preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.

Consumers who have purchased the product and not opened or eaten it, should discard it. Consumers who have eaten the product should monitor themselves for symptoms and see a doctor of they develop.
