Threat of salmonella leads to major frozen chicken recall

Posted on July 24, 2015 5:36 pm under Defective Food Product

Aspen Foods has recently announced that nearly two million pounds of their frozen chicken has been recalled in response to three cases of salmonella resulting from their products in Minnesota, according to FOX 59 on July 17.

This announcement follows one from Barber Foods in Portland, Maine, which broadened a previously announced recall to include an additional 1.7 million pounds of their frozen chicken after eight people also took ill with salmonella in Minnesota and Wisconsin due to their product.

Aspen Foods has recalled raw, breaded, stuffed chicken breasts that were produced between April 15 and July 10 of this year. These products are labeled “safe to use” by July 14, 2016 and October 10, 2016. Koch Poultry Company of Chicago, the parent company of Aspen Foods, specified that their breaded cordon bleu, breaded broccoli and cheese, breaded chicken Kiev, breaded chicken Parmesan, and breaded buffalo-style chicken will be included in the recall. Eighteen brands were named in the recall.

Symptoms of the infection include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever occurring within twelve to seventy-two hours after exposure.
