Salmonella outbreak linked to Fareway chicken salad

Iowa’s Department of Public Health issued a public alert about a salmonella outbreak associated to a chicken salad sold at Fareway stores. In Minnesota, state’s health department confirmed one person as a victim of the outbreak.

In 28 of the laboratory-confirmed cases in Iowa the patient reported eating the chicken salad prior to their symptoms appearance. Apart from these there are another 66 persons that are probable cases according to Iowa health department.

Fareway Stores has about 120 retail stores and according to USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service the item was sold at all the stores in Iowa, as well as Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota.

The company has stopped voluntarily selling the product on Feb 9th, and claims that the chicken salad is produced and packaged by a third party - not Fareway, according to their website.

Suggestions for consumers

Food Safety and Inspection Service is concerned that some product may be in consumers' refrigerators or freezers, therefore the agency is urging the public not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase

Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The usual symptoms are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days where Most people recover without treatment.

However, older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness.
