On October 11, 2007, ConAgra Foods announced that it was replacing its advisory notice of October 9, 2007 with a RECALL notice of all varieties of Banquet brand frozen pot pies and all varieties of store brand frozen pot pies sold under the names of Albertson's, Hill Country Fare, Food Lion, Great Value, Kirkwood, Kroger, Meijer and Western Family. Now, the Salmonella outbreak related to the ConAgra food debacle is up to 165 injuries in 31 states. The company has finally recalled not just frozen chicken or turkey pot pie products with "P-9" printed on the side of packaging, but also all pot pie products, including chicken, turkey and beef.
Salmonella poisoning can lead to symptoms that can appear 12 to 72 hours after infection, which include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. The illness usually lasts four to seven days. In severe cases, the infection may spread from the intestines to the blood and then to other sites in the body, sometimes causing death. Treatment includes antibiotics.
