According to the CDC, the chicken salad products were produced by Triple T Specialty Meats, Inc., a company based out of Ackley, Iowa. Those products may have been contaminated with Salmonella, the agency says.

The products covered by the recall were produced between January 2 and February 7 and bear the number P-21011 inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were later sold at Fareway locations in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota.

So far, 37 cases of Salmonella have been identified in Iowa.

Any products subject to recall should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase, the CDC says.
