July 13, 2015 -- About 1.7 million pound of frozen, raw stuffed chicken breasts are being recalled by Barber Foods due to possible salmonella contamination.
An initial recall of about 58,000 pounds of the chicken breasts produced on Jan. 29, Feb. 20 and April 23 was announced on July 2 after an outbreak of salmonella cases was linked to the products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said.
Since then, two more cases of salmonella linked with the chicken breasts have been confirmed, leading to an expansion of the recall to include products produced between Feb. 17 and May 20.
The recall is for 2-lb. 4-oz. cardboard boxes 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 recalled products have the establishment number "P-276" inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products were shipped to stores across the United States and Canada.
