Salmonella an Adulterant? National Chicken Council Bawks

The USDA announced plans this week to make it illegal to sell chicken Kiev and other stuffed, breaded, raw chicken products that are contaminated with Salmonella.

But it made big news. Chair of the House Appropriations Committee Rosa DeLauro (CT-03), who is perhaps the greatest champion of food safety in Congress, released a statement calling the announcement a "vital first step to improved protections for the public from foodborne illness."

Which Stores Sold Antioch Farms Chicken Linked to Salmonella Outbreak?

A Salmonella outbreak  linked to Antioch Farms frozen Chicken Cordon Bleu has sickened at least three people in Minnesota and may include illnesses in other states. Although epidemiological evidence has identified the product as the source of the outbreak, the company has not issued a recall. The only information consumers have been given regarding the product is that the packaging is marked with the code P-1358.
