OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Department of Health has joined public health officials in two other states and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to investigate a foodborne outbreak of Salmonella associated with pre-packaged stuffed chicken products.

Public health officials say as of Thursday, 10 cases in three states - eight in Minnesota and one each in Wisconsin and Oklahoma - have been linked to two multistate Salmonella outbreaks. Several brands of frozen, raw chicken products have been recalled, including Barber Foods, Meijer, Sysco, and Omaha Steaks. The products were packaged in smaller quantities for home use and in larger quantities for institutional purchase.

Public health officials say consumers who purchase raw, frozen, breaded and pre-browned, stuffed chicken entrees, regardless of brand, to use sound food hygiene procedures to prevent foodborne illness.
