If you purchased Fareway chicken salad, do not eat it. Throw it away in a sealed or double bagged package, or take it back to the store where you bought it for a full refund. Government officials are concerned that some of this product could be frozen in home freezers.

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include diarrhea that may be bloody, abdominal cramps, vomiting, nausea, fever, and muscle aches. Most people recover without treatment, but some do get so sick they need to be hospitalized. If you have eaten this salad and have experienced these symptoms, see your doctor.
