Costco's South San Francisco store is recalling more rotisserie chicken products that may be contaminated with salmonella.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced the recall on Thursday of a little more than 13,400 "Kirkland Signature Foster Farms" rotisserie chickens and related Kirkland Farms products such as soup, chicken salad and leg quarters. The items were sold at the store between Sept. 24 and Oct. 15.

The previous recall was for more than 9,000 Foster Farms rotisserie chickens and related products purchased at the same South San Francisco Costco between Sept. 11 and Sept. 23.

The store is located on El Camino Real.

Tainted chicken was traced to two Foster Farms processing plants in Central California.

Health officials urge anyone with the chicken to throw it away or return it.

Agriculture officials say there have been no reports of illness from the latest recall.
