KANSAS CITY — Six stolen refrigerator trucks have turned up in Kansas City minus most of their food.

The missing food includes about $60,000 worth of frozen chicken, which has prompted police to warn the public to only buy frozen chicken from reputable vendors.

Sgt. Keith Ericsson said there is a public safety concern because authorities don't know how the chicken has been transported or kept.

Authorities found the trailers Monday in Kansas City with the help of a tracking device.

Most of the food already had removed from the trailers.

Police and the United States Department of Agriculture are investigating.
