Giant Food of Maryland Recalls Koch Oven Cravers Chicken Products

Filed September 28th, 2015 F.A. Kelley

Giant Food of Maryland LLC launched a recall of Koch Oven Cravers brand frozen, raw, stuffed and breaded chicken products manufactured by Chicago-based Aspen Foods.

Giant is pulling these products off store shelves and informing consumers about the recall because the chicken may be contaminated with Salmonella enteritidis, Meat & Poultry (meatpoultry.com) reports.The affected products include Koch Oven Cravers Broccoli & Cheese (10 oz.), UPC 4542145512, all code dates; Koch Oven Cravers Chicken Parmesan (10 oz.), UPC 4542153140, all code dates; Koch Oven Cravers Cordon Bleu (10 oz.), UPC 4542141512, all code dates.

To date, Giant has received no reports of illnesses related to the Oven Cravers product. The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) alert included products bearing EST # P-1358 and best by dates between Oct. 29, 2016, and Dec. 16, 2016. But the company said it was pulling all code dates for the products “out of an abundance of caution.” Customers who bought the product should discard it and bring their receipt to Giant for a full refund, according to Meat & Poultry

The Food Safety and Inspection Service issued a public health alert on September 18 warning consumers that frozen stuffed chicken products manufactured by Aspen Foods may be contaminated by Salmonella enteritidis.

Koch’s frozen, raw, stuffed and breaded chicken products were subject to a recall in July after the products were linked to a cluster of illnesses in Minnesota. The July recall included 1,978,680 lbs. of frozen, raw, stuffed and breaded chicken, Meat & Poultry reports. FSIS intensified sampling efforts at Aspen Foods following the outbreak. The agency said 12 samples tested positive for the outbreak strain of Salmonella enteritidis. Aspen Foods declined to recall the products, which prompted the agency to issue the public health alert.

FSIS said in the alert that it “cannot have confidence in the safety of any products produced after July 30, 2015.” FSIS directed its personnel “to detain products covered by this alert that they find in commerce because the company has refused to recall the products,” Meat & Poultry reports.

Salmonella infection causes diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps, within 12 to 72 hours after the individual has ingested tainted food. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the illness typically lasts four to seven days and most people recover without treatment. But in some cases, the illness can be serious enough to require hospitalization. The infection can spread from the intestines to the blood stream and other parts of the body, requiring treatment with antibiotics. Children under five, the elderly, pregnant women, and those with compromised immune systems are at greatest risk for serious salmonella infection.

The Food and Drug Administration estimates that 48 million people—one in six Americans—suffer from foodborne illnesses annually. More than 100,000 people are hospitalized and about 3,000 die annually from such infections, according to the CDC.
