Mnet 139172 Chicken Kiev Recall Lead

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Federal authorities say a Chicago company has recalled nearly 29,000 pounds of chicken Kiev products linked to a salmonella outbreak in Minnesota.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the raw, frozen chicken entrees from the Aspen Foods division of Koch Meats were sold as Antioch Farms brand A La Kiev raw stuffed chicken breast. They were sold at several grocery chains in single 5-ounce packages with a USDA stamped code of P-1358.

Minnesota health and agricultural officials say the products were linked to six salmonella cases in the state in August and September, including one hospitalization.

They say this was the state's first salmonella outbreak linked to these types of raw chicken products since 2008, when labelling requirements were changed to make them state that the products are raw.
