The CDC said 87% out of 222 ill people who were interviewed reported eating chicken salad from Fareway grocery stores.

“CDC recommends that people do not eat recalled chicken salad. Throw it away or return it to the place of purchase. This investigation is ongoing and we will provide updates when more information is available.”

Chicken Salad Recalled for Salmonella Risk

On February 21, 2018, Triple T Specialty Meats Inc. announced a recall for all ready-to-eat chicken salad due to a risk of contamination with Salmonella Typhimurium, according to the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service.

The recall involves 20,630 pounds of chicken salad that was sold at the deli counters of Fareway grocery stores. The products were produced between January 2, 2018 and February 7, 2018.

Fareway stopped selling Triple T chicken salad in all of its stores on February 9, 2018, and says it will not re-stock the product until “we are certain the problem has unquestionably been resolved.”

Salmonella Food Poisoning

Eating food that is contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common types of food poisoning. The symptoms are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12-72 hours after eating the food. The symptoms usual lasts for 4-7 days. Most people recover without treatment, but some people must be hospitalized due to severe diarrhea, dehydration, or other symptoms.
