Amidst concerns of a salmonella outbreak, Health Canada has released a statement advising Canadians not to eat frozen raw breaded chicken products.

The announcement warns that while breaded products may appear pre-cooked, many of the frozen foods are actually raw and must be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 74C.

The frozen raw breaded poultry products are linked to a current outbreak of Salmonella infections in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador. Based on the agency’s investigation, exposure to the chicken products has been established as a source of the illness.

According to Health Canada there are currently 44 cases of salmonella across the four provinces. Twelve people have been hospitalized but no deaths have been reported.
