ConAgra announced yesterday, a recall of all Banquet pot pies and store brand pot pies (manufacted by ConAgra). All varieties of the following brands are subject to this recall:
- Food Lion
- Great Value (Wal-Mart)
- Hill Country Fare (HEB)
- Kirkwood (Aldi’s)
- Western Family
Frozen pot pies that are part of the recall are stamped “P-9” or “Est. 1059” on the side of the package.
Due to a long shelf life, these pot pies may still be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers should check their freezers for pot pies subject to the recall.
Instead of a recall, earlier this week the USDA issued a public health safety alert warning consumers not to eat certain ConAgra pot pies; stating that the CDC had linked the pot pies to a Salmonella outbreak. The outbreak sickened 139 individuals in 30 states. ConAgra halted production of the pot pies in its Marshall, Missouri, factory, but did not recall the pies.
On October 11, the CDC reported a total of 165 cases of Salmonella food poisoning connected with the pot pie recall. Cases had been identified in 31 states between January 1, and October 11, 2007. The CDC also stated that at least 30 people had been hospitalized, but no deaths were linked to the pot pie recall.
