Foster Farms issued a recall for some of its chicken products Thursday, its first tied to a 16-month outbreak of salmonella.

The recall is for chicken with “use or freeze by” dates ranging from March 21 to March 29, the company said.

The poultry was produced at three sites identifiable on packaging with the plant codes P-6137, P-6137A and P-7632.

Foster Farms, the largest poultry producer in California, did not say how many pounds of poultry were involved in the recall.
