SAN FRANCISCO — Federal agriculture officials said chicken producer Foster
Farms is recalling about 6,165 pounds of its ready-to-eat grilled chicken breast
strips because the strips contain wheat and soy — known allergens — which are
not listed on the labels of its packages.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service
announced the recall Tuesday, which affected seven states, including Arizona. The mislabeled packages were discovered
when a customer complained. Food safety inspectors and officials at Foster
Farms said the problem occurred when labels for another chicken product that does
not contain wheat or soy were inadvertently used.
The recalled item, Foster Farms Grilled Chicken Breast Strips Boneless & Skinless With Rib Meat 97% Fat Free, has a case code 000606.
Officials said there have been no reports of adverse reactions from the sale of
the mislabeled products.
Besides Arizona, the chicken breast strips being recalled were produced on April 23 and were also
distributed to retail establishments in California, Hawaii, Nevada,
Oregon, Utah and Washington.
