Breaded Chicken Recall Linked To Salmonella

If you have some breaded chicken burgers sitting in your freezer, you might want to double check the box before you toss them in the oven.

Some breaded chicken products under the Janes brand name are being recalled because of a possible Salmonella contamination.

The affected products include Janes Pub Style Chicken Burgers with the code 2018 MA 12 and Janes Popcorn Chicken with the code 2018 MA 15.

Both of the affected products come in 800g packages and were sold across Canada.

The recall was triggered by the results of a Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak.

According to the latest update on the CFIA’s investigation, 13 cases of Salmonella illness have been reported in four provinces — including seven cases in Ontario. Four people have been hospitalized, but no deaths have been reported.

The report indicates that the people who got sick started showed symptoms between June and August of 2017.

The CFIA says food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but it can still make you sick.

Some of the short-term symptoms include fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. Most people who get sick from a Salmonella infection will recover fully after a few days.
