The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has issued yet another public health alert specific to the three East Coast states due to concerns that some 'Hungry Man' Chicken Wing products may be contaminated with Salmonella.

'Hungry Man Chipotle BBQ Sauced Boneless Chicken Wyngz" is the newest addition to the growing list of foods that may make people sick. The package is the 15.25-oz. dinner with the "best by" date of 9/6/19. These dinners were shipped to retailers in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Virginia. 

Pinnacle Foods, Inc., the producer of 'Hungry Man', informed the FSIS after Pinnacle's supplier notified them that the microwavable dinner contained whey powder that had been recalled due to possible contamination. The powder was infused with the mash potatoes found in the dinner package.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Consumers with questions can contact Pinnacle Foods Consumer Care at 1-888-257-1057.
