Our Minnesota law firm is investigating an outbreak of salmonellosis linked to Antioch Farms frozen chicken kiev. At least 6 people were sickened in August and September 2014. One of them was hospitalized.
The implicated product is Antioch Farms brand A La Kiev raw stuffed chicken breast with a U.S. Department of Agriculture stamped code of P-1358. The chicken is frozen, breaded and pre-browned, but it is not cooked. This product is sold at many different grocery store chains in Minnesota.
“Our DNA fingerprinting found that the individuals were sickened by the same strain of Salmonella Enteritidis,” said Dr. Carlota Medus, epidemiologist for the Foodborne Diseases Unit at the Minnesota Department of Health. “The Minnesota Department of Agriculture collected samples of the same type of product from grocery stores and the outbreak strain of Salmonella was found in packages of this product.”
Our law firm is one of the few in the United States that practices extensively in the area of food poisoning litigation. Our Salmonella lawyers have won millions for clients in lawsuits against multinational corporations. These are David versus Goliath cases that require experience using DNA evidence to connect illnesses with a food product.
