Foster Farms chicken again linked to salmonella

Foster Farms, the California processor linked to an ongoing salmonella outbreak that started last year, has recalled an unspecified amount of chicken products that may be contaminated with salmonella Heidelberg, USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.

The fresh and frozen chicken products may have been sold at Costco, Foodmaxx, Kroger, Safeway and other stores in Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Utah and Washington.

The recalled items were produced from March 7-13. FSIS asked Foster Farms to recall these products because they are known to be linked to a specific illness.

“At Foster Farms, our first concern is always the health and safety of the people who enjoy our products, and we stand committed to doing our part to enhance the safety of our nation's food supply,” Foster Farms said in a press release.

A full list of recalled products can be found on the Foster Farms website.

The outbreak that started last year has so far sickened 621 people in 29 states and Puerto Rico, according to the CDC.
