WASHINGTON – Foster Farms is recalling about 6,000 pounds of ready-to-eat grilled chicken breast strips that contain wheat and soy as well as known allergens not declared on the product label.

The product subject to recall is 4.5 pound cases containing 12, 6-ounce trays of “Foster Farms grilled chicken breast strips boneless and skinless with rib meat 97% fat free” with”000606” as the case code, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

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

The recall came after a customer complaint and the revelation the company had inadvertently used labels meant for another chicken product it produces that does not contain wheat or soy.
