There have been several recalls around frozen chicken products due to an outbreak of salmonella contamination in Canada.
Out of an abundance of caution, the brand No Name is voluntarily recalling all breaded frozen chicken products.
The company also announced that they will only be producing cooked chicken products from now on.
“Understanding the potential risk of illness associated with frozen raw chicken products, moving forward No Name® will introduce only 100% fully cooked frozen chicken nuggets, strips and burgers,” said the company.
This voluntary recall includes all lot codes, sold on or before February 8, 2019 from the following products:
In Western Canada, the products were sold at Extra Foods®, No Frills®, Real Canadian Superstore®, Real Canadian Wholesale Club®, Your Independent Grocer®, and affiliated independent stores.
Improper handling and preparation of these and any other raw chicken products could expose consumers to salmonella. According to Health Canada, the risk of contracting salmonella can be avoided if safe food handling, preparation and cooking practices are followed.
All affected products have been removed from store shelves. Customers can return the product to any store where No Name® products are sold and the customer service desk will provide a full refund.
