Check your freezer!

Some chicken patties sold at Costco have been recalled due to a possible plastic contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.

Foster Farms recalled around 148,000 pounds of its frozen chicken breast patties shipped to Costco warehouses in California, Arizona, Colorado, Utah, and Washington. Officials said it's possible the product was sold at stores in states not yet listed.

The recall was issued because the chicken patties may contain hard pieces of plastic, according to the FSIS.
