These products were recalled on August 9, 2021. They should no longer be for sale. However, they can be kept frozen for a long time and may still be in your freezer.
Check your freezer for recalled products. If you have any left:
- Do not eat or cook them. Throw them away or return them to where you bought them.
- Wash surfaces and containers that may have touched the recalled product using hot soapy water or a dishwasher.
Always take steps to prevent getting sick from raw frozen breaded stuffed chicken products. Some frozen breaded stuffed chicken products may look browned and cooked but are, in fact, raw. They have been linked to several outbreaks, including a 2015 Salmonella outbreak.
- Follow cooking instructions exactly as written on the label. Do not cook them using a microwave, air fryer, or other methods not stated on the label; these methods do not always cook raw chicken products fully.
- Use a food thermometer to check that the center of the chicken has reached 165°F, a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria. Color is not a reliable way to tell if the chicken is safe to eat.
- Wash your hands before and after handling raw chicken products. Wash surfaces and containers that have touched raw chicken using hot soapy water or a dishwasher.
- Keep raw chicken products away from food that will be eaten uncooked and food that has already been cooked.
