Compliments Chicken Strips Linked to Salmonella Outbreak in Canada

Compliments chicken strips are being recalled in Canada because they are linked to a Salmonella outbreak in that country. The Public Health Agency of Canada is investigating an outbreak of human illnesses and has identified this product as a source of illness. The outbreak investigation is ongoing and officials may name other products.

The recalled product is Compliments brand Chicken Strips – Breaded Chicken Cutlets – Uncooked, sold in 907 gram packages. The code on the outer package is 2019 NO 24 and on the inner package it is 328MM. the UPC number on the product is 0 57742 33687 0. The chicken was sold nationwide until May 1, 2019. Some consumers may still have this product in their home freezers.

Many frozen breaded chicken products on the market are raw, but they appear to be cooked because of the breading. Any raw chicken product can carry Salmonella bacteria. Handle and prepare these items with caution. For instance, these types of foods should not be cooked in the microwave oven, since that appliance can leave cold spots and not kill any pathogens that may be present.

If you think you got sick after eating this product, contact your doctor. Foods contaminated with pathogenic bacteria such as Salmonella will not look, smell, or taste spoiled, and their texture will not be compromised, but they can still make you sick. Symptoms of a Salmonella infection include fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, abdominal and stomach pain and cramps, and diarrhea that may be bloody. Long term complications of a Salmonella food poisoning infection can include reactive arthritis and high blood pressure.

If you purchased this product, do not eat it, even if you plan to cook it. Throw it away in a sealed package and put it into a secure garbage can with a lid. Or you can take the chicken back to the place of purchase for a refund. Wash your hands well with soap and water after handling this product.
