October 5, 2015 — Another 561,000 pounds of frozen raw chicken dinners have been recalled by Aspen Foods due to possible Salmonella contamination.
The raw, stuffed, and breaded chicken breasts are sold in the frozen-foods section, often next to fully-cooked chicken products. They appear ready-to-eat, but are actually uncooked (raw) and must be heated to an internal temperature of 165ºF.
In July 2015, Aspen Foods recalled 1.9 million pounds of frozen raw chicken with “best-by” dates up to October 2016. The expanded recall includes products with best-by dates through December 2016.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that health officials in Minnesota linked the products to a cluster of five illnesses, including two hospitalizations, with onset dates ranging from May 9, 2015 to July 22, 2015.
After that recall, the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) stepped up their sampling of products made by Aspen Foods. Positive test results matched the outbreak strain of Salmonella Enteritidis.
Brands associated with the recall include:
- Antioch Farms
- Buckley Farms
- Centrella Signature
- Chestnut Farms
- Family Favorites
- Home Dining Selections
- Koch Foods
- Market Day
- Oven Cravers
- Rosebud Farm
- Safeway Kitchens
