ST. PAUL - A salmonella outbreak has been linked to deli-style chicken salad sold at Fareway grocery stores in Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and Illinois between Jan. 4 and Feb. 9.

Thus far, 65 cases and 28 hospitalizations have been reported. In southwest Minnesota, two reported cases involved a resident of Martin County and a resident of Jackson County. Age range of the two patients was 28-75 years old (one male and one female). Both became ill prior to Feb. 7. One was hospitalized and recovered.

The chicken salad, produced by Triple T Specialty Meats Inc., was pulled from the stores Feb. 9 and recalled Feb. 21.

People who have chicken salad in their refrigerators or freezers should discard any chicken salad purchased at Fareway grocery stores.

The Centers for Disease Control continues to investigate the outbreak, and urges people to discard deli-style chicken salad purchased from Fareway grocery stores - even if they’ve eaten some and haven’t become sick. Also, people are asked to wash and sanitize countertops as well as drawers or shelves in refrigerators or freezers where recalled chicken salad was stored.
