Warning for consumers: Salmonella in chilled chicken meat from abroad


The Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority (CAFIA) warns consumers of unsafe foodstuff TESCO CHICKEN PRSNÍ ŘÍZEK (chicken breast meat), lot: 23293102, bred and slaughtered: the Ukraine, pursuant to the veterinary identification stamp (SK 10094 ES) packaged by WE Trade s.r.o., Hlavná 1088, 92503 Horné Saliby, Slovakia. The inspectors took the sample at the premises of Tesco Stores ČR a.s., Rudolická 1706/4, 434 01 Most.

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: 26.07.2023”, 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 food 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 Release of 12 July 2023.
