Chicken recall

Frozen raw chicken is making headlines again.

Alabama Department of Agriculture & Industries Consumer Food Safety Inspectors are conducting recall checks on various products produced by Aspen Foods, a division of Koch Poultry Company.

Approximately 1,978,680 pounds of frozen, raw, stuffed and breaded chicken may be contaminated with Salmonella.

This follows a recall last week, where Barber Foods announced the recall of 1.7 million pounds of similar frozen chicken products after consumers in Minnesota and Wisconsin became ill.

Aspen Foods, a division of the Koch Poultry Company that sells products under numerous brand names at some of the country’s largest retail supermarkets including Safeway and Aldi, said recalled products have “best if used by” dates between July 14, 2016 and Oct. 10, 2016 and include the following brands:

  • Acclaim
  • Antioch Farms
  • Buckley Farms
  • Centrella Signature
  • Chestnut Farms
  • Family Favorites
  • Kirkwood
  • Koch Foods
  • Market Day
  • Oven Cravers
  • Rose
  • Rosebud Farm
  • Roundy’s
  • Safeway Kitchens
  • Schwan’s
  • Shaner’s
  • Spartan
  • 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.

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.

This frozen, raw, stuffed and breaded chicken product was labeled with instructions identifying that the product was raw and included cooking instructions for preparation.
