CDC, FSIS investigating 28 cases of Salmonella illness in eight states
THURSDAY, Aug. 12, 2021 (HealthDay News) — More than 59,000 pounds of frozen, raw, breaded, and prebrowned stuffed chicken products linked with a multistate Salmonella outbreak have been recalled, according to the U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The products were produced Feb. 24 and Feb. 25, 2021, by Serenade Foods in Indiana and were sold under the brand names Milford Valley, Dutch Farms, and Kirkwood. A public health alert about the products was issued by the FSIS on June 2.
The FSIS has been working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and public health partners to investigate 28 cases of Salmonella illness in eight states. The illnesses began between Feb. 21 and June 28, 2021.
Samples from unopened packages of raw, frozen, breaded chicken stuffed with broccoli and cheese found in an ill person’s home tested positive for the strain of Salmonella enteritidis in the outbreak, according to the FSIS.
The recalled products, which have establishment number “P-2375” inside the U.S. Department of Agriculture mark of inspection, were shipped across the United States. Consumers who still have these products in their freezer should throw them away or return them to the place of purchase, FSIS said in a news release.
