A Salmonella Outbreak Causes Yet Another Massive Frozen Chicken Recall


This week, almost four million pounds of frozen raw chicken have been pulled from grocery store shelves.

A new salmonella outbreak has caused yet another massive frozen raw chicken recall.This time, Aspen Foods, based in Chicago, Illinois, is taking nearly two million pounds of frozen, raw, stuffed, and breaded chicken off grocery store shelves after the USDA reported three cases of salmonella from April to June in people who ate the company’s products.

This is the second nearly identical recall this week. On July 12, Barber Foods announced that they were issuing a recall of their frozen raw chicken products, following four confirmed cases of salmonella. Barber had another frozen raw chicken recall earlier this month.


The products in question this time include cordon bleu, broccoli and cheese, chicken Kiev, chicken parmesan, and buffalo-style chicken varieties. The Aspen products are sold under a variety of labels/brands: Acclaim, Antioch Farms, Buckley Farms, Centrella Signature, Chestnut Farms, Family Favorites, Kirkwood, Koch Foods, Market Day, Oven Cravers, Rose, Rosebud Farm, Roundy’s, Safeway Kitchens, Schwan’s, Shaner’s, Spartan, and Sysco. If you own any of these Aspen products, you should dispose of them now.
