Aspen Foods Recalls Breaded Chicken Amid Salmonella Scare

Aspen Foods of Chicago is continuing its recall of frozen chicken products after receiving more reports of salmonella illnesses linked to their products. The products recalled include packages of breaded Chicken Kiev, Chicken and Broccoli, and Chicken Cordon Bleu. This recall comes after the company issued a previous recall in July 2015.

Salmonella infection can lead to serious, even deadly, complications. When a company's product is found to be responsible for a consumer's illness, that company may be held liable for the consumer's medical costs and other economic losses caused by the illness. If you or your child became ill after consuming a product such as the products listed above, you could be entitled to a monetary settlement. Contact an experienced food poisoning attorney today to begin this discussion.

Recognizing Recalled Products is Key

When a product recall is issued, the manufacturer must provide consumers with the information they need to correctly identify which products were affected and should not be consumed. This is especially important if the product was sold under multiple names, like the affected chicken from Aspen Foods. The chicken breasts were sold at multiple food outlets under various names, including Rosebud Farm, Antioch Farms, Market Day, and Family Favorites.

The key to knowing which chicken products were affected is in the products' establishment number. The establishment number is located within the USDA mark of inspection on the product's package. The affected chicken products were marked “P-1358.” These products were produced in August and September of 2015.

Keep yourself informed about product recalls as they happen by checking recalls.gov and signing up for recall newsletters.

Seek Medical Care for Salmonella Poisoning

If you have eaten a recalled product and experienced feelings of discomfort or illness, seek medical care and tell your doctor that you might have been exposed to salmonella. He or she can prescribe the appropriate treatment for your illness. Symptoms of salmonella poisoning, also known as salmonellosis, include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Fever

One of the most serious complications that can stem from salmonellosis is dehydration. If you are suffering from this illness, be sure to consume a lot of liquid. In many cases, salmonellosis resolves itself within 48 to 72 hours. However, it sometimes requires medical intervention.
