WASHINGTON – The US Dept. of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has issued a public health alert in the state of Iowa following reports of illnesses that may be caused by Salmonella found in a chicken salad product. The chicken salad was sold in Fareway grocery stores in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota.

The Iowa Dept. of Public Health notified FSIS on Feb. 9 of an investigation of Salmonella-related illnesses in the state.

The Fareway chicken salad item was produced between Dec. 15, 2017, and Feb. 13, 2018. Varying weights of “Fareway Chicken Salad” were sold in plastic deli containers with a Fareway store deli label and shipped to all Fareway grocery stores in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota and sold directly to Fareway consumers. The problem was discovered following reports of illness in Iowa.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers' refrigerators or freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
