ATLANTA - Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin is alerting consumers to the recall of some frozen chicken products that may be contaminated with Salmonella.
ConAgra Foods Packaged Foods, LLC, Council Bluffs, Iowa, is recalling all Marie Callender's brand Cheesy Chicken and Rice frozen meals because the product may be contaminated with Salmonella serotype Chester.
The recall includes all 13-ounce packages of Marie Callender's Cheesy Chicken & Rice White Meat Chicken and Broccoli over Rice Topped with Rich Cheddar Sauce, regardless of production date.
Each package bears a label with establishment number "P-45" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The product is being recalled due to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) investigation involving 29 people in 14 states who have been diagnosed with salmonellosis linked to Salmonella serotype Chester.
Eight of the patients specifically reported eating this product in April and May, 2010, before becoming ill.
