Update: Chicken Salad Sold at Fareway Linked to Salmonella Outbreak
March 8, 2018 – A rare outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium that has sickened 170 people in 7 states has been linked to chicken salad sold at Fareway grocery stores in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota. The recalled products were produced by Triple T Specialty Meats Inc., and sold from January 4 to February 9, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
What’s the problem?
February 6, 2012 – The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced today that Grand Strand Sandwich Company is recalling the following products because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes:
- Grand Strand Sandwich 4.5oz. – UPC #067068101056 – Sell By 02/24/12
- Grand Strand Sandwich 4.5oz. – UPC #067068101056 – Sell By 02/29/12

- Lunchbox Chicken Salad 4.5oz – UPC #067068121050 – Sell By 02/24/12
This recall was initiated when it was found that Grand Strand’s chicken salad manufacturer, Bost Distributing, had purchased hard cooked eggs currently being recalled by Michael Foods. A nationwide recall of Michael eggs was announced on January 26th, and subsequently expanded on February 1st to include additional lot dates, one of which was received by Bost Distributing.
Because the chicken salad sandwiches included in this recall are fresh and have relatively short shelf lives, it is likely that the majority of these products have already been consumed. However, consumers who may still have the product in their possession should discard it immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. To date, there have been no illnesses reported in connection with this recall.
