Includes Western Family and Albertsonís brands, among others
October 14, 2007
Due to concerns over an outbreak of salmonellosis, ConAgra Foods has voluntarily recalled all varieties of frozen pot pies, chicken and beef, sold under the Banquet brand and under the names of Albertson's, Hill Country Fare, Food Lion, Great Value, Kirkwood, Kroger, Meijer and Western Family.
In cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), on October 9th, ConAgra Foods directed retailers to remove the poultry pot pies from shelves, suspended pot pie production in its Marshall, Missouri, plant and advised consumers to not eat these products and discard these products while an investigation was conducted.
ConAgra Foods reminds consumers that these products are not ready-to-eat. Proper cooking of all not-ready-to-eat products, including pot pies, is specifically designed to eliminate the presence of common pathogens found in many uncooked products.
The recall includes all Banquet pot pie varieties, including poultry and beef. The store brand not-ready-to-eat pot pie products include all varieties under the following brand names:
- Albertson's (sold at Albertson's);
- Hill Country Fare (sold at HEB);
- Food Lion (sold at Food Lion);
- Great Value (sold at Wal-Mart);
- Kirkwood (sold at Aldi);
- Kroger (sold at Kroger);
- Meijer (sold at Meijer);
- Western Family (now discontinued; previously sold at a variety of small retailers).
