Salmonella scare prompts H-E-B chicken recall

Posted on

A potential salmonella contamination has prompted H-E-B grocery stores to issue a voluntary recall for 19 varieties of its Asian Ready to Eat meals. Chicken in these meals, which were distributed for sale in 40 stores throughout the Dallas, Texas, metropolitan area, may not have been cooked thoroughly. The meals affected by this recall were displayed in the stores’ “Grab N Go” sections. This recall has been issued in response to a report received by H-E-B from a consumer concerned about the possibility that the chicken in one of these products had not been cooked properly. The entrees affected by this recall include: General Joe’s Chicken Entrée (universal price code 0026966900000), Lemon Grass Chicken Entrée (universal price code 0026967000000), Lemon Chicken Entrée (universal price code 0026967100000), Sesame Chicken Entrée (universal price code 0026960600000), H-E-B Bowl General Joe’s Chicken (universal price code 0026967200000), H-E-B Bowl Lemon Chicken (universal price code 0026967500000). Any of these products sold before May 3, 2012 should be considered potentially contaminated and affected by this recall. Consumers who have purchased these products can return them to any H-E-B store to receive a full refund.

As a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer, I hope that this recall has been issued in time to prevent anyone from consuming these potentially affected products. If you or someone you know has been harmed by a defective or contaminated product, please consider contacting a personal injury attorney.
