What’s the Problem?

Year after year, Americans eat more chicken than any other meat, according to the North American Meat Institute [2]. When properly cooked and served, chicken can be among the healthiest things you can eat; however, undercooked or raw chicken is often contaminated with salmonella, Campylobacter or Clostridium bacteria. If you eat undercooked chicken or other foods or beverages contaminated by raw chicken or its juices, you can get a foodborne illness, which is also called food poisoning. That’s why it’s important to take special care when handling and preparing chicken.

Fareway Chicken Salad Recall

March 2018 – An investigation by the CDC and U.S. Department of Agriculture identified the source of the outbreak as chicken salad products made by Triple T Specialty Meats Inc., sold from January 4 to February 9 at Fareway grocery stores in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota.

At least 170 cases of salmonella infection (salmonellosis) have been linked to chicken salad sold at Fareway grocery stores, according to the CDC.

On March 8, the CDC announced that an additional 105 people had fallen ill with Salmonella Typhimurium [4], bringing the total number of cases to 170.

Along with the states where the chicken was sold, there have been cases of salmonella infection linked to the chicken salad reported in Texas and Indiana. These individuals likely purchased the contaminated chicken salad from Fareway stores before it was recalled, according to the CDC.

What is Salmonella Typhimurium?

Salmonella Typhimurium causes a typhoid-like disease characterized by diarrhea, abdominal cramps, vomiting and nausea, which generally lasts up to 7 days. In immunocompromised people — the elderly, young, or people with depressed immune systems — S. Typhimurium infections are often fatal if they are not treated with antibiotics.

Salmonella Symptoms

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Headache
  • Blood in the stool

CDC Recommendations to Avoid Salmonella

CDC is advising consumers to avoid eating the recalled chicken salad and to discard it immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a refund. If you don’t remember when you purchased chicken salad from Fareway, don’t eat it. Even if some of the chicken salad was eaten or served and no one got sick, the rest should be thrown away, including any chicken salad in your freezer, CDC said.
