1.7 Million Pounds of Frozen Chicken Recalled For Salmonella
July 15, 2015
Maine-based Barber Foods is recalling 1,707,494 pounds of stuffed frozen chicken in fear of salmonella contamination.
Products produced between February 17, 2015 and May 20, 2015 are affected, including chicken breasts stuffed with broccoli and cheese, asparagus and cheese, and ham and cheese, along with chicken fingers and Chicken Kiev and Cordon Bleu.
This is the second recall announcement from Barber this month. On July 2, the company recalled 58,320 pounds of frozen Chicken Kiev. This expansion comes in response to consumers from Wisconsin and Minnesota displaying symptoms of salmonella food poisoning.
What do those symptoms entail? Severe diarrhea, cramping and fever are common. But March of Dimes indicates symptoms can be much more serious during pregnancy: You and your baby could develop meningitis.
