Barber Foods Recalls 1.7 Million Pounds of Frozen Chicken Products
Barber Foods is recalling frozen, raw, stuffed chicken products due to possible Salmonella contamination.
WZZM-13 reports that the initial recall was announced July 2 and involved about 58,00 pounds of chicken products. The recall is being expanded to approximately 1.7 million pounds of chicken after more illnesses were reported, according the the USDA.
The recalled products were produced between Feb. 17, 2015 and May 20, 2-15 and included 2-lb. 4-oz. cardboard boxes containing 6 individual packages of Chicken Kiev, Chicken Cordon Bleu, Chicken Tenders, or Chicken Broccolli Cheese.
According to the CDC, most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection, with symptoms lasting 4-7 days.
Cooking chicken all the way through to a temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit should kill Salmonella.
The USDA encourages anyone with questions to contact Barber Food's at (844) 564-5555.
