The Salmonella outbreak has sickened at least 265 people in 8 states, including 94 people who were hospitalized and 1 person who died in Iowa.

In interviews, about 87% of people said they ate chicken salad from a Fareway grocery store before they got food poisoning, according to an update from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on April 6.

The outbreak is linked to chicken salad that was produced in February by Triple T Specialty Meats in Iowa.

The company has recalled all chicken salad that was produced between January 2 and February 7, 2018. The chicken salad was sold in the deli at Fareway grocery stores in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota.

The first illnesses were reported on January 8 and occurred through March 20, the CDC reported. After the first illnesses were reported in February, Fareway pulled all of the chicken salad from its stores.

Fareway has more than 118 stores across the Midwest. The company said in a statement:

“This product has not been sold at any Fareway location since Feb. 9, 2018, and will not be sold again at any Fareway until we are certain the problem has unquestionably been resolved.”
