The Public Health Agency is collaborating with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Health Canada to investigate an outbreak of Salmonella in four provinces linked to frozen raw breaded chicken products.
Currently, there are 13 cases of Salmonella illness between June and August in four provinces including 7 in Ontario.
The Public Health Agency reports the salmonella outbreak stems from not cooking raw breaded chicken products properly. Microwaving is not recommended because of uneven heating.
Four people have been hospitalized but no deaths have been reported.
