Hungry Man Recall
July 20, 2018 — Pinnacle Foods Inc., of Fayetteville, Arkansas, has announced a recall for certain Hungry Man® dinners due to a risk of Salmonella contamination, according to the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service. No illnesses have been reported.
What Hungry Man Dinners Were Recalled?
The recall involves 15.25-oz. individual frozen microwavable dinners with “HUNGRY MAN CHIPOTLE BBQ SAUCED BONELESS CHICKEN WYNGZ” printed on the label and bearing a best buy date of 9/6/19.
The product bears establishment number “EST. P138” or “P-138” on the side of the carton. These products were shipped to retail locations in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
What is the Problem?
Hungry Man® is a frozen microwave TV dinner product that contains whey powder, an ingredient that was recalled by a third-party supplier (Associated Milk Producers, Inc.) due to Salmonella.
The recalled whey powder was used in the Hungry Man ranch dressing seasoning. The ranch dressing seasoning was also added to mashed potatoes and packaged along with a boneless chicken dinner.
The recall for Hungry Man dinners was announced after several other products were recalled for the same risk of Salmonella in whey powder, including Ritz Bits, Ritz Cracker Sandwiches, Goldfish Crackers, and Swiss Rolls. At least 100 Salmonella illnesses in 33 states have also recently been linked to Honey Smacks cereal.
Salmonella Food Poisoning
Eating food that is contaminated with Salmonella bacteria can cause food poisoning. The most common symptoms are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated food. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days.
“In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness.”
