40,000 lbs of rotisserie chicken with rare bacteria recalled

Posted under Product Liability

A San Francisco-based wholesaler is recalling nearly 40,000 pounds of rotisserie chicken products due to possible contamination of a rare kind of Salmonella. The contaminated chicken products are believed to have caused  hundreds of people in several states in the U.S. to become sick.

The recall affects Costco’s line of Kirkland rotisserie chicken products sold from September 11 to 23, which may have Salmonella Heidelberg bacteria. According to reports, more than 300 people have gotten ill, most from California, due to this bacteria.

The chickens used by Costco were supplied by Foster Farms, who refused to voluntarily recall their chickens. The recalled rotisserie chicken products have already been pulled from Costco stores, and Costco is cooperating with federal agents to determine the cause of the illnesses linked to the recalled products.

Sadly, many people suffer from serious health issues as a result of contaminated food products.
