Warning for consumers: Salmonella in chilled chicken meat from abroad


The Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority (CAFIA) warns consumers of unsafe foodstuff, CHLAZENÝ KUŘECÍ PRSNÍ ŘÍZEK (chicken breast meat), lot: 23313202, bred and slaughtered: the Ukraine, veterinary identification stamp: SK10094 ES, processed: Slovakia, producer: WE Trade s.r.o., Hlavná 1088, 925 03 Horné Saliby, Slovakia.

The inspectors from the Inspectorate in Olomouc took the sample at the premises of Penny Market s.r.o., Rooseveltova 520/100, 779 00 Olomouc.

Laboratory analysis confirmed presence of bacteria of the genus Salmonella Infantis causing salmonellosis in the food lot in question.

As the product was labelled “use by: 11.08.2023”, it is no longer available on the market. However, CAFIA strongly advises all consumers who might have the product at home in a frozen state that they do not consume it. Freezing has virtually no effect on bacterial contamination.

Notification of the detection of the non-compliant foodstuff was entered into the European Rapid Alert System for Food (RASFF).

The food was sampled as a part of a planned extraordinary microbiological inspection.

CAFIA will initiate an administrative procedure with the inspected person to impose a fine.

CAFIA informed of a similar finding in its Press Releases of 22nd August 2023 and  of 12th July 2023.
