Salmonella Cases Linked to Chicken Salad Now Total 170

There have now been 105 more confirmed salmonella illnesses associated with chicken salad sold at Fareway stores, bringing the total number of cases to 170 in seven states, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Thursday.

Sixty-two people have required hospitalization. No deaths have been reported.

The chicken salad was produced by Triple T Specialty Meats Inc., which issued a recall for all chicken salad made between Jan. 2 and Feb. 7, 2018. The chicken salad was sold at Fareway stores between Jan. 4 and Feb. 9.

People with the recalled chicken salad should throw it away or return it to the store, and those who don't remember the date they bought chicken salad from Fareway should do the same, the CDC said.
