Thrifty Foods issues chicken recall

Thrifty Foods is warning its customers that barbecue chicken and chicken pieces sold at the chain’s Port Place location might have been chemically contaminated.

The products were sold between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Friday and bear a “best before” date of Jan. 4.

Products included in the voluntary recall include Thrifty Foods brand Whole Barbecue Chickens (regular, UPC code 774147302203); Barbecue Chicken Breasts (UPC code 286385112372); and Barbecue Chicken Legs (UPC code 286401401640).

The possible contamination came from dishwasher cleaning pucks that had not fully dissolved when chicken oven parts were washed and they might have evaporated during the cooking process.

Customers can return affected products to any Thrifty Foods location for full refund.
