ConAgra Issues Recall on Three Varieties of Banquet Pot Pies

Product may be contaminated with Salmonella

ST. LOUIS - ConAgra Foods Inc., of Omaha, Neb., has issued a nationwide voluntary recall for three varieties of Banquet Pot Pies in the 7-ounce package because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.

Customers are urged to check for the following products with code P-9 or Est. 1059 printed on the side of the package:

The presence of Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience symptoms that appear 12 to 72 hours after infection that include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Most people recover without treatment.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began investigating last week after receiving reports of illness. The CDC has since identified the pot pies as a potential source of the Salmonella that sickened more than 100 people in dozens of states.

Schnucks and Logli customers in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Tennessee and Mississippi may return the specified product to their nearest store for a full refund or exchange.

Consumers with questions may contact ConAgra at 1-866-484-8671 or the Schnucks Consumer Affair Department at 314-994-4400 or 1-800-264-4400.
