Safeway recalls various chicken products

Some Foster Farms brands may be infected with Salmonella Heidelberg

In cooperation with the Foster Farms voluntary recall of products that may have been contaminated with Salmonella Heidelberg, Safeway is voluntarily recalling a limited number of products made with chicken supplied by Foster Farms sold with "Use or Freeze By" dates ranging from March 17 through March 29, 2014.

The items were sold in March 2014 in five states from both the self-service and full-service meat cases in stores. Because the items were sold fresh, they are no longer available in stores. However, customers are asked to check their freezers for the products listed below.

The recall includes all marinated or seasoned fresh chicken products sold from the self-service or full-service counter in Northern California, Hawaii, Northern Nevada, Oregon and Western Washington State with "Use or Freeze By" dates ranging from March 17 through March 29. The marinades and season flavors include:

-- Bulgogi

-- Charmoula

-- Greek Lemon

-- Drunken

-- Yellow Curry

-- Caribbean Jerk

-- Buffalo and Chipotle Brown Sugar

In addition, the following products are part of Foster Farms' original recall and are sold from the self-serve meat counter. They were also sold in Northern California, Hawaii, Northern Nevada, Oregon and Western Washington State with "Use or Freeze By" dates ranging from March 17 through March 29:

-- Eating Right Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

-- Eating Right Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs

Foster Farms has been notified of one illness associated with its products.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Customers who purchased these products should discard them or return them for a full refund. For more information, customers can call 1-866-SAFEWAY 24 hours a day.
