Feds Issue Salmonella Warning on Costco Chicken Salad

Feds Issue Salmonella Warning on Costco Chicken Salad

By    |   Friday, 14 October 2016 09:32 AM

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued a warning about a Salmonella outbreak possibly linked to chicken salad sold in a Costco store just north of Seattle, according to the Department of Agriculture.

The warning comes on the heels of an E. coli outbreak that spread to four states less than a year ago from the chain's chicken salad.

The current warning was issued after four people tested positive for Salmonella after consuming Costco's rotisserie chicken salad sold at store No. 1190 in Lynwood, Wash.

Salmonella can cause severe diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated product. The chicken salad in question was sold on Aug. 26, Aug. 31, and Sept. 2, 2016.

Although most people recover from salmonellosis without treatment in about seven days, in some cases, hospitalization may be required. The elderly, young, or immunosuppressed are most at risk of serious illness.

The USDA's warning stressed that inspectors were concerned some consumers may have frozen the product. The warning advised customers to consume rotisserie chicken that has been cooked at 165 degrees Fahrenheit and confirmed with a food thermometer that measures internal temperature. Cooking chicken thoroughly is the only way to ensure it is not contaminated with harmful bacteria.
