Aspen Foods, a division of Koch Foods, is recalling about 561,000 pounds of frozen, raw stuffed and breaded chicken products that appear to be ready-to-eat and may be contaminated with Salmonella Enteritidis.
The recall was announced by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on October 2, two weeks after FSIS issued a public health alert, informing consumers that the chicken products have been confirmed as having the same Salmonella Enteritidis outbreak strain which was part of the company’s recall of nearly 2 million pounds of chicken products in July.
According to the latest recall notice, the products were produced between August 25 and September 17, with “best if used by” dates of August 23, 2016 to December 15, 2016. The brands associated with this recall include: Acclaim, Antioch Farms, Buckley Farms, Centrella Signature, Chestnut Farms, Family Favorites, Home Dining Selections, Kirkwood, Koch Foods, Market Day, Oven Cravers, Rose, Rosebud Farm, Roundy’s, Safeway Kitchens, Schwan’s, Shaner’s, Spartan and Sysco
The product subject to recall bears the establishment number “P-1358” inside the USDA mark of inspection. This product was shipped to retail stores and food service locations nationwide.
FSIS was notified of a cluster of Salmonella-related illnesses on June 23, in which five patients in Minnesdota became ill between May 9 and July 22.
