Statement from Dr. Urvashi Rangan, Executive Director of Consumer Reports Food Safety and Sustainability Center on Foster Farms Recall 7/14

We do not believe the current action taken to recall Foster Farms’ contaminated chicken goes far enough to protect the public’s health. We are calling on the government and the company to do more by widening the dates of the recall to the beginning of the outbreak (March 2013) and shutting down the plants in question until the outbreak is under control.

We think it's outrageous that despite the fact that 621 confirmed human illnesses and hospitalizations have been tied to the same virulent and drug resistant strains of Salmonellae found in Foster Farms chicken over the last 18 months, that the recall is only being restricted to three days in March 2014 and tied to only one human illness. Consumers deserve better.
