Triple T Specialty Meats, Inc. has recalled all chicken salad sold at Fareway Grocery Stores produced from January 2, 2018 to February 7, 2018 as it may be contaminated with Salmonella Typhimurium.
The recalled chicken salad was sold in containers of various weights from the deli at Fareway grocery stores in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota from January 4, 2018 to February 9, 2018.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that people do not eat the recalled chicken salad and should throw it away or return it to the place of purchase. Even if some of the chicken salad was eaten or served and no one got sick, throw the rest of it away. Put it in a sealed bag in the trash so that children, pets, and other animals can’t eat it.
