The addresses of the Fareway foods stores where the implicated salad was sold have not been published. We do know that Fareway removed this product from its stores, according to the advisory. No chicken salad has been sold from those stores to the public since February 9, 2018.
DIA Food and Consumer Safety Bureau Chief Steven Mandernach said, “The company has been very cooperative and is working with IDPH and DIA in the investigation of the reported illnesses.”
IDPH Medical Director Dr. Patricia Quinlisk said, “The bottom line is that no one should eat this product. If you have it in your refrigerator, you should throw it away.”
Salmonella food poisoning can cause severe illness, and it is sometimes fatal. If you ate this product and think you have been sickened, you should contact your doctor.
