If you cook chicken, it's time to check your fridge and freezer.
Aspen Foods has issued a massive recall of nearly 2 million pounds of chicken due to possible Salmonella Enteritidis contamination, according to a USDA announcement Wednesday.
Aspen, a Koch Poultry Company division, is recalling 1,978,680 pounds of frozen, raw, stuffed and breaded chicken, which was produced between April 15 and July 10 with "best if used by" dates between July 14, 2016 and October 10, 2016.
The impacted items have the establishment number "P-1358" inside the USDA inspection mark and were shipped across the country.
This comes on the heels of a separate massive chicken recall from Barber Food this week totaling 1.7 million frozen, raw stuffed chicken products that may be contaminated with Salmonella.
To put these two recalls totaling 3.7 million pounds in context, approximately 18.7 million pounds of food were recalled during the entire year in 2014.
On June 23, the USDA's inspection branch was notified of a cluster of Salmonella illnesses, which were linked to the Aspen chicken.
Consuming food contaminated with Salmonella can cause a bacterial foodborne illnesses with symptoms including diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after exposure. While most recover without treatment, people with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness from it.
Also on Wednesday, Murry's recalled about 20,000 pounds of Bell & Evans gluten-free breaded chicken breast nuggets due to Staphylococcal enterotoxin contamination.
