(WBNG Binghamton) A New York City based processor is pulling certain broiled chicken liver and chopped liver from its distribution because the U.S. Department of Agriculture finds it's linked to an outbreak of salmonella infection.
Broiled Chicken products hailing from the Schreiber Processing Corporation in Maspeth are recalled. They were labeled as "broiled," but this is misleading.
The meat was only partially cooked; it needs to be fully cooked before consumption.
The recall affects 10 lb. boxes containing two 5 lb. bags of "Meal Mart Broiled Chicken Liver Made for Thermal Processing," and 10 lb. boxes packed and labeled "Chicken Liver Broiled." Each bag or box contains the establishment number "P-787" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
Illnesses have been reported in chopped liver made from the product at retail stores as well.
So far, 33 cases in nine upstate counties are linked to the outbreak,
on top of the 56 cases already reported in New York City.
The product was distributed to retail stores and institutional users in Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
State agencies are working with the USDA and CDC to investigate the outbreak.
