July 16, 2015 — Consumers who have recently purchased frozen stuffed chicken breasts might want to check to see if the products are among those recalled for Salmonella contamination.
Aspen Foods is recalling approximately 2 million pounds of raw, frozen, stuffed and breaded chicken items with “best-by” dates between July 14, 2016 and October 10, 2016.
The products include about a dozen brands of breaded chicken, including stuffed chicken parmesan, broccoli & cheese, diced ham, chicken Kiev, Italian style, and more.

The products were linked to three illnesses in Minnesota between May 9 and June 8, 2015. Based on trackback investigations, health officials determined there is a link between the illnesses and raw frozen breaded chicken products from Aspen Foods. Earlier this month, another recall was issued by Barber Foods Inc. for 1.7 million pounds of raw frozen chicken dinners due to possible Salmonella contamination. Four illnesses were linked to those products in Minnesota.
The products are often located in the same section of a grocery store as pre-cooked chicken products, but they are raw and need to be heated to an internal temperature of 165ºF. According to health officials:
“Although the product subject to recall may appear to be cooked, this product is in fact uncooked (raw) and should be handled carefully to avoid cross-contamination in the kitchen.”
Brands included in the recall:
- Chestnut Farms
- Family Favorites
- Safeway Kitchens
- Buckley Farms
- Oven Cravers
- Centrella Signature
- Koch Foods
- Antioch Farms
- Rosebud Farm
