Thousands of pounds of rotisserie chicken have been recalled by Costco due to possible contamination of rare salmonella bacteria, according to Federal health officials. The recalled products have been linked to hundreds of people in various states becoming ill.
The recall affects at least 40,000 pounds of rotisserie chicken that was sold by Costco from September 11 to 23. The chicken is believed to have been contaminated with the Salmonella Heidelberg bacteria, which is uncommon in the U.S. A public health alert was recently issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which also allowed Costco to operate given that it will resolve the issue.
The recalled chickens that caused the contamination were supplied by Foster Farms.
Costco is currently cooperating with federal agents in investigating the cause of the problem.
