Chicago-based company Aspen Foods issued a huge recall on July 15 affecting nearly two million pounds of processed chicken meat products due to possible salmonella contamination, the US Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) reported.
According to the recall, at least four kinds of processed chicken meat packed in various brands were affected, estimated at 1,978,680 lbs. The recall was issued after the FSIS was informed of consumer illnesses in Minnesota that may have been caused by the chicken products. The report also revealed that some of the sickened consumers confirmed that they followed the cooking instructions found on the label of the recalled chicken products. The FSIS stated that consumers, especially those with poor immune systems, are at risk of becoming seriously ill if they consume contaminated food.
