Foster Farms recalling contaminated chicken nuggets

Some Foster Poultry Farms frozen chicken nuggets that may be contaminated with blue plastic and black rubber materials have been recalled.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the fully cooked frozen chicken breast nuggets were produced on Feb. 22, 2016, and March 8, 2016. There are two types of products on recall:

• 5-pound bags of Foster Farms' "Breast Nuggets -- Nugget Shaped Breaded Chicken Breast Patties with Rib Meat." The bags exhibit "best by" dates of February 21, 2017, and March 8, 2017.

• 10-pound bulk boxes of Foster Farms' "Breast Nuggets -- Nugget Shaped Breaded Chicken Breast Patties with Rib Meat." The boxes contain package codes 6053 and 6068.

The affected 5-pound bags were sold at Costco locations in Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Utah. The 10-pound bags were sold to nonretail wholesale distributors in California and Arizona, says FSIS.

The problem was discovered after customer complaints to the USDA Friday.

The recall is being classified as a Class I recall, where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death. So far, there has been no reports of any health issues from the chicken nuggets.

FSIS is urging consumers to either throw away the products or return them to the place of purchase.
