Banquet pot pies recalled in salmonella scare

Filed under:

Another food recall this week was announced after salmonella bacteria poisoning became suspect in Banquet brand chicken and turkey pot pies. Additionally, many generic store brands were under the recall as well.

The CDC in Atlanta started investigating the problem early this week after some reports of illnesses last week were tied to the consumption of these pot pie products.

Over 100 sick people were identified and the correlation between them was the el-cheapo, frozen pot pie. Banquet is a discount brand produced by ConAgra Foods, the same company that brought us the wonderful peanut butter recall earlier this year.

Pot pie production was halted this past Tuesday by ConAgra, so perhaps these distasteful products will stay off shelves for at least a little while.
