Foster Farms Chicken Recall

October 9th, 2013 at 08:17 am

I made dinner last night (orange chicken stir fry) and we had just sat down to eat, when DH turned the local news on and they had a segment about a Foster Farms chicken recall. They gave the serial numbers and DH went to get the bag of chicken from the freezer (I buy the big bag of frozen chicken breasts from Costco) and sure enough, the bag was part of the recall!

Dinner went into the garbage (boo)and we will be returning the bag to Costco this weekend for a refund.

They said the recall just came out (and not sooner) because of the government shutdown and the lack of people available.

The recall affects people in 18 states and approximately 287 people have become ill.

Two of the serial numbers are P6137 and 6137A (I believe).

    Wow what timing! Glad you will get a refund. What did you do for dinner instead?

    Well it was lucky you heard about it before you ate it!

    As long as you cook the meat thoroughly you wouldn't have had a problem. Salmonella and E Coli are killed when meat is cooked to a proper temperature and there is no cross contamination of raw and cooked meat- ie don't use a knife or plates that have not been washed thoroughly after in contact with raw meat. They recall meat because of the risk that consumers will not cook it properly.
