California Firm Recalls Ready-to-eat Grilled Chicken Strips Due to Misbranding and Undeclared Allergens

The recalled product bears the establishment number “P-20923” inside the USDA mark of inspection and a use-by date of “JUN 22 2013” printed on each tray.

Foster Farms Recall

(WASHINGTON DC) - Foster Farms, a Porterville, Calif. establishment, is recalling approximately 6,165 pounds of ready-to-eat grilled chicken breast strips that contain wheat and soy, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

  • 4.5 lb. cases containing 12, 6-oz. trays of “FOSTER FARMS GRILLED CHICKEN BREAST STRIPS BONELESS & SKINLESS WITH RIB MEAT 97% FAT FREE,” with an identifying case code of “000606.”

The recalled product bears the establishment number “P-20923” inside the USDA mark of inspection and a use-by date of “JUN 22 2013” printed on each tray. The product was produced on April 23, 2013, and was distributed to retail establishments in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington.

The problem was discovered as a result of a customer complaint and occurred because the company inadvertently used labels for another chicken product it produces that does not contain wheat or soy.


FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions associated with consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an adverse reaction should see a health care professional.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.


Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Teresa Lenz, the company’s Consumer Affairs Manager, at 209-394-6914.
