A Salmonella outbreak linked to Antioch Farms frozen chicken kiev sickened at least six people in Minnesota during August and September. One person was hospitalized.
The breaded, stuffed chicken entrees were pre-browned but raw. They were sold at a number of grocery stores throughout the state in packages stamped with the code of P-1358 inside the USDA mark of inspection.
Health officials in Minnesota used DNA "fingerprinting" tests on stool samples collected from patients to determine the outbreak strain and found that it was a genetic match to Salmonella found in unopened packages of the product purchased at the grocery store.
Symptoms of Salmonella poisoning include fever, abdominal pain and cramps and diarrhea. Symptoms usually develop between 6 and 72 hours after exposure and last about a week. About 20 percent of cases require hospitalization. In rare cases salmonellosis can be fatal.
