1 minute read

A Maine-based food company is recalling 1,707,494 lbs of chicken, fearing it could be contaminated with salmonella.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, the recall affects “frozen, raw stuffed chicken products” produced by Barber Foods between February 17, 2015 and May 20, 2015. The products include chicken breast stuffed with broccoli and cheese, asparagus and cheese, and ham and cheese, along with chicken fingers and Chicken Kiev and Cordon Bleu.

The recall was made after patients from Wisconsin and Minnesota showed signs of illness caused by the bacteria.

This new recall is an extension of a recall from July 2 of this year, where the company recalled 58,320 pounds of the frozen Chicken Kiev with sell by dates of April 28, 2016; May 20, 2016; and July 21, 2016.

Symptoms of salmonella infection include fevers, diarrhea, and abdominal cramps lasting up to one week.
