17 October, 2020

The Food Standards Agency and Public Health England are reminding people to take care when handling and cooking frozen raw breaded chicken products at home, such as nuggets, goujons, dippers, poppers and kievs. This comes after a rise in cases of two particular strains of Salmonella Enteritidis linked to frozen raw breaded processed chicken products. Two product recalls have been undertaken.
From January 2020 there have been 390 cases of Salmonellosis (Nearly half are children) caused by two strains of Salmonella Enteritidis linked to frozen, raw, breaded chicken products.
