Costco Is Recalling 148,000 Pounds of Foster Farms Chicken Patties

The Paper Forest

A food safety issue discovered by customers led Costco to withdraw another product from its stores less than two weeks after removing Kirkland's Signature Pine Nut Hummus off its shelves.

On October 29, the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture said that Foster Farms, a poultry company whose goods are marketed at Costco, had recalled over 148,000 pounds of fully cooked frozen chicken breast patties.

Consumer complaints about hard, transparent plastic bits imbedded in the food products prompted the action.

Produced on August 11, 2022, the impacted goods were delivered to Costco distribution centers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Utah, and Washington. They may also have been sold at other Costco stores.

The establishment number "P-33901," the lot code "3*2223**," the "Best By" date of August 11, 2023, and the number "7527899724" under the product's barcode are all visible on the back edge of the 80-ounce plastic bags.

The FSIS stated in its notice that "the hard plastic bits could be sharp and possibly cause an injury," despite the fact that there have been no documented injury reports linked to the intake of the chicken patties.

The government advises consumers to either throw away or return the frozen chicken patties to the store where they were purchased, classifying the recall as "Class I - Medium or High Risk."

The Costco product recall website does not currently have a recall notice available. Call the Foster Farms Consumer Hotline at 1-800-338-8051 if you have any additional questions about the recall, or send an email to
