Chicken Recall Connected to Minnesota Salmonella Cases
WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Illinois-based Aspen Foods is recalling nearly 2 million pounds of raw, frozen chicken products over concerns they might be contaminated with salmonella.
The federal agency announced the recall Thursday, saying in a news release that it determined there was a link between the products and three people in Minnesota getting infected with salmonella. The agency says the products are stuffed and breaded and may appear cooked, but they are raw.
The products were shipped nationwide and have the establishment number "P-1358" in the USDA inspection mark. Brands associated with the recall include Kirkwood, Roundy's, Safeway Kitchens and Spartan.
The Department of Agriculture said earlier this week that Barber Foods of Maine is recalling 1.7 million pounds of frozen chicken products over salmonella concerns.
