After being notified of the positive test result, the uSDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) conducted traceback activities.

Staphylococcal food poisoning is a gastrointestinal (“GI”) tract illness. It is caused by eating foods contaminated with toxin-producing Staphylococcus aureus, a common bacterium found on the skin and in the noses of healthy people and animals. Staphylococcus aureus can produce seven different toxins that are frequently responsible for food poisoning.

Staphylococcal enterotoxins are fast acting, sometimes causing illness in as little as 30 minutes. Symptoms usually develop within one to six hours after eating contaminated food. Patients typically experience several of the following: nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea. The illness is usually mild and most patients recover after one to three days.

If you believe you have purchased the recalled Chicken do not consume it. Instead, you should return this product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
