A local grocery store chain says they have pulled a series of chicken products off of their shelves, because of a potential Salmonella contamination. Giant Food says Aspen Foods, a division of Koch Poultry Company, has recalled several of their Oven Cravers frozen, raw stuffed and breaded chicken products, although there have been no reported illnesses at this time.

The following products are included in this recall:

Salmonellosis, which is caused by eating food contaminated with Salmonella, is one of the most common bacterial food borne illnesses, and can present as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within eight to 72 hours of consumption, and chills, headache, nausea and vomiting that can last up to seven days. Infections can be life-threatening, to some including those with weak immune systems, like infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.

Those who have purchased any of these products should discard any unused portions, and can bring their purchase receipt to Giant for a full refund.
