July 16, 2015 — After three illness reports, nearly two million pounds of raw, frozen, breaded, stuffed chicken breast dinners sold under various brands have been recalled due to Salmonella contamination.
The recall was issued by Aspen Foods, a supplier of chicken dinners to everyone from grocery stores like Safeway to food service companies like SYSCO.
Recalled products include breaded and/or stuffed chicken, such as broccoli & cheese, diced ham, parmesan, Italian style, and more. Click here (XLS) for a full list of recalled products.
Based on trackback investigations, health officials in Minnesota have confirmed three illnesses. Earlier this month, they reported another four illnesses from similar chicken products sold by Barber Foods.
The problem is that uncooked frozen chicken is often sold near pre-cooked products, which could be confusing. Raw chicken always needs to be heated to 165ºF before it is safe to eat. Health officials warn:
“Although the product subject to recall may appear to be cooked, this product is in fact uncooked (raw) and should be handled carefully to avoid cross-contamination in the kitchen.”
Brands included in the recall:
- Chestnut Farms
- Family Favorites
- Safeway Kitchens
- Buckley Farms
- Oven Cravers
- Centrella Signature
- Koch Foods
- Antioch Farms
- Rosebud Farms
