The CDC, several states, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA-FSIS) are investigating an outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis infections linked to raw, frozen, stuffed chicken entrees produced by Barber Foods.
Nine people infected with a strain of Salmonella Enteritidis have been reported from four states: Illinois (1), Minnesota (6), Oklahoma (1), and Wisconsin (1). Three of these ill people have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.
Barber Foods issued an expanded recall of approximately 1.7 million pounds of frozen, raw stuffed chicken products that may be contaminated with Salmonella Enteritidis on July 12, 2015. This recall expanded the initial Barber Foods recall of chicken Kiev on July 2, 2015.
Products were sold under many different brand names, including Barber Foods, Meijer, and Sysco.
Products subject to recall bear the establishment number “P-276” on the packaging.
Products were shipped to retail locations nationwide and Canada.
A list of recalled products is available.
Photos of recalled product labels are available.
Consumers should check their freezers for recalled frozen chicken products and should not eat them. Retailers should not sell them and restaurants should not serve them.
