Click on the above logo to go to Con Agra’s press release. Interestingly, Con Agra does not do a recall of its Salmonella Pot Pies, but instead tells customers to return the product or throw it away. I guess FSIS/USDA is tired of doing recalls since it has spent the last two weeks assisting in the recall of nearly 23,000,000 pounds of hamburger?
I have an idea – since Con Agra and USDA/FSIS are not doing a recall, why not mail the Salmonella Pot Pies directly to your Congressman or Senator? Remember, “we have the safest food supply in the world.”

According to the Minnesota Department of Health, six cases of Salmonella infection in Minnesota residents have been linked to eating Banquet brand turkey or chicken pot pies, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) said today. The finding prompted health and agriculture officials to warn consumers not to eat any Banquet brand pot pies. An investigation is ongoing. Banquet brand pot pies are sold in the freezer section at grocery stores and other outlets throughout the country. Pot pies made at the same plant are also sold under a dozen store labels, but all carry a code number beginning with 5009. “Best if used by” dates for implicated product are not known at this time.
