Here is another Recall Notice for a Costco Product that is pretty popular 🙁 The recall says it has been recalled due to possible harmful bacteria due to improper cooking instructions on the box.
Ottawa, March 6, 2017 – JD Sweid Foods (2013) Ltd. is recalling Hampton House brand Chicken Strips from the marketplace due to an error in the preparation instructions on the label. The oven preparation instructions on the label should read: “Preheat to 204°C (400°F)”. The product may contain harmful bacteria that may cause food illnesses.
If you think you became sick from consuming a recalled product, call your doctor.
Check to see if you have recalled product in your home. Recalled product should be returned to the store where it was purchased.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product.
This recall was triggered by the company. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products. If other high-risk products are recalled, the CFIA will notify the public through updated Food Recall Warnings.
The CFIA is verifying that industry is removing recalled product from the marketplace.
Costco does keep track of each member’s purchases and does attempt to contact members who may have purchased the recalled product through an automated phone system. This is a good time to go to the membership desk to make sure they have the correct contact information for you (especially if you have moved or changed phone numbers since you have originally purchased your membership).
Did you know that Costco lists all product recalls on its website Costco.ca (under Product Notices on the bottom menu) and in-store? In the stores I have visited, the product recall list is on a bulletin board usually near the exit of the store by employees checking receipts.
Costco has also posted a bulletin available here: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/inspection/2017/62500r-eng.php
