Salmonella Scare Sparks Recall of ConAgra Frozen Pot Pies
October 17, 2007 - ConAgra Foods has issued a voluntary recall of all of its frozen pot pies produced at a Missouri facility, and state health officials are urging Indiana residents to dispose of affected products.
All varieties - including chicken, turkey and beef - of the following brands of frozen pot pie products distributed in Indiana and labeled with an establishment number of "P9" or "Est. 1059" are subject to the recall: Banquet; Great Value (Wal-Mart); Kirkwood (Aldi); Kroger; and Meijer.
"We recommend people do not eat and do discard any pot pie with 'P-9' or 'Est. 1059' printed on the side of the package to avoid exposure to salmonella," Lynae Granzow, an epidemiologist at the Indiana State Department of Health said in an agency press release. "The investigation has found persons have become ill even when the pot pies were cooked according to the product's cooking instructions. The pot pies have an 18-month expiration date from the time of production so many people may still have these products in their freezers."
Consumers can receive a refund by returning the product packaging -- minus the contents -- to the store where it was purchased or by sending the side panel of the package displaying "P-9" or "Est. 1059" to ConAgra Foods, Dept. BQPP, P.O. Box 3768, Omaha, Nebraska 68103-0768. For questions about the recall, call (866) 484-8671 or go to www.conagrafoods.com.
Salmonella is a bacterium found in the intestines of many animals, and infection can occur when people eat contaminated or undercooked foods, such as poultry, eggs, and produce. Salmonella can also be passed person to person by inadequately washing their hands after using the restroom. Symptoms, such as vomiting, diarrhea, fever, cramps, nausea, and gas, usually begin within 18-36 hours after ingesting salmonella, and most people recover without medical treatment within four to seven days.
