STATEWIDE — Serenade Foods, an Indiana-based company, is recalling 59,521 pounds of chicken products because of possible salmonella contamination.

The frozen, raw, breaded, and pre-browned stuffed chicken items were produced in February and shipped to Aldi stores across the country.

The chicken was sold under the brand names Dutch Farms, Milford Valley, and Kirkwood.

The recall includes individually-wrapped packages of the following:

  • Dutch Farms Chicken with Broccoli & Cheese
  • Milford Valley Chicken Cordon Bleu
  • Kirkwood Raw Stuffed Chicken, Broccoli & Cheese
  • Kirkwood Raw Stuffed Chicken, Cordon Bleu

The recalled chicken products all have a “best if used by date” of Feb. 2023 and bear establishment number “P-2375” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The USDA Food Safety Inspection Service is working with the CDC to investigate 28 cases of Salmonella Enteritidis across eight different states. The illnesses were reported between Feb. 21 and June 28.

“Unopened intact packages of raw, frozen, breaded chicken stuffed with broccoli and cheese were collected from an ill person’s home and tested positive for the outbreak strain of Salmonella Enteritidis,” the service said.

Salmonella can cause a bacterial foodborne illness called salmonellosis, which can cause diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours of eating the product.
