Breaded Chicken Breast Patties With Rib Meat made by California-based Foster Farms, are being re-called, according to the USDA.

Approximately 132,000 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken patties are the subject of a level-two recall due to a possible contamination. A level-two recall, indicates a low level of health risk, however the food may contain pieces of plastic.

The patties were shipped to distribution centers in California, Washington, Utah, Arizona and Alaska, were produced on Feb. 15 and carry an expiration date of Feb. 15, 2018. Consumers can identify the product by looking for the establishment number "P-33901" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The company is urging consumers not to eat the chicken and to either throw it away or return it to the store for a refund.

The recall is in response to three complaints from consumers throughout March and April regarding pieces of soft plastic found in the food. The plastic is from the packaging material used for the chicken, according to the company.
