Chicken is one of the most common foods at American dinner tables. Whether purchased fresh or frozen, consumers trust that the meat will be safe for their families. Sometimes this is not the case. One popular food company is recalling their chicken from the Louisiana shelves and those around the country.
The company at the center of the recall is Barber Foods. Almost 2 million pounds of raw frozen chicken is being recalled due to the possible presence of salmonella. Louisiana residents should check their freezers for packages processed between February 2015 and May 2015. Thus far there have been six salmonella cases reported. The contaminated chicken in question is sold under the following brand names: Barber Foods, Western Family, Meijer ad Loblaw's. The remedy for consumers with the defective product is to discard the contaminated chicken or return the packages to the retailer for a full refund.
