Foster Farms recalls grilled chicken breast strips

Posted: Updated:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -

Federal agriculture officials say chicken producer Foster Farms is recalling about 6,165 pounds of its ready-to-eat grilled chicken breast strips because the strips contain wheat and soy -- known allergens -- which are not listed on the labels of its packages.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall Tuesday, saying the mislabeled packages were discovered when a customer complained.  Food safety inspectors and officials at Foster Farms say the problem occurred when labels for another chicken product that does not contain wheat or soy were inadvertently used.

Officials say there have been no reports of adverse reactions from the sale of the mislabeled products.

The chicken breast strips being recalled were produced on April 23 and were distributed to retail establishments in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
