Retail List for Foster Farms Salmonella Chicken Includes Military Bases

The USDA has released the retail distribution list for Foster Farms chicken products recalled for Salmonella contamination. The release states that “This list may not include all retail locations that have received the recalled product or may include retail locations that did not actually receive the recalled product. Therefore, it is important that you use the product specific identification information” available at the USDA web site.

Also, Fred Meyer stores in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington state, Quality Food center in Washington state, Ralphs in California, and WinCo in California, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, and Washington state may have received the products. Local stores in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington state may have sold the recalled chicken.

And the products were supplied to military commissaries in five states. In Hawaii, the chicken was sold at Hickam Air Force Base, Pearl Harbor Onc Commissary Store, Kaneohe Bay MCBH, Schofield Barracks, and Schofield Commissary. The recalled products were also sold at Travis Air Force Base in California, Port Hueneme Commissary in California, and several other Armed Forces Commissaries in that state. McConnell Air Force Base in Kansas was also included in the distribution list. In addition, bases in Alaska, Nevada, and Washington state received the contaminated chicken.

The Defense Department awarded Foster Poultry Farms a $190.4 million dollar contract from 2003 through 2012. Officials do not yet know if military families are among the 621 sickened in the Foster Farms outbreak that has been ongoing since March 2013.

If you purchased chicken at any of those stores on the list, do not eat it. Discard in a closed container or return to the place of purchase for a refund. If you ate any of the recalled chicken and have experienced symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning, which include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, and blood in the stool, see your doctor and tell you ate the recalled chicken.
