Recalled: Raw stuffed chicken products by Barber Food
Barber Food is recalling approximately 1,707,494 pounds of frozen, raw stuffed chicken products that may be contaminated with Salmonella, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) The chicken products were produced between Feb. 17 and May 20, 2015. Since the original recall on July 2, 2015, two more case-patients have been identified. The scope of this recall expansion includes all products associated with contaminated source material.
The following product is subject to recall:
2-lb. 4-oz. cardboard box containing 6 individually pouched pieces of "BARBER FOODS PREMIUM ENTREES BREADED-BONELESS RAW STUFFED CHICKEN BREASTS WITH RIB MEAT KIEV" with use by/sell by date of April 28, 2016, May 20, 2016 and July 21, 2016 and Lot Code number 0950292102, 0950512101, or 0951132202.
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number "P-276" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
FSIS and the company are concerned that some products may be in consumers' freezers. Although the products subject to recall may appear to be cooked, these products are in fact uncooked (raw) and should be handled carefully to avoid cross-contamination in the kitchen. These frozen, raw, stuffed chicken products were labeled with instructions identifying that the product was raw and included cooking instructions for preparation. Some case-patients reported following the cooking instructions on the label and using a food thermometer to confirm that the recommended temperature was achieved.
When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls. Consumers with questions can contact the company directly at 844-564-5555.
