Company recalls frozen chicken products due to Salmonella

WASHINGTON (KWWL) -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Friday that ConAgra Foods of Council Bluffs is recalling Marie Callender's brand Cheesy Chicken and Rice frozen meals.

The frozen meals are being recalled after an investigation involving 29 people in 14 states that were diagnosed with salmonellosis was released.  Eight of the patients in the study reported eating the same product in April and May before they became sick.

The investigation to find the exact cause of the illnesses is ongoing, but the FSIS has determined it a safe move to recall the products in question.  So far, only one product has been recalled.  As the investigation continues and other products in question are pulled, the FSIS will update the list of recalled foods on their web site.
