Janes Chicken Burgers Recalled Due To Salmonella Risk

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) says Sofina Foods Inc. is recalling Janes brand Pub Style Chicken Burgers from the marketplace due to possible Salmonella contamination.

The agency says the uncooked breaded chicken burgers were sold across the country in 800 gram packages with a best before date of May 14, 2019 (UPC code 0 69299 12491 0).

Funny how it's just the chicken burgers and not any other type of breaded meat that may have been sold at the same time.

I believe these contamination problems have always been there but we just never had a comprehensive food inspection system to identify these problems and trace them back to the source. People always got sick from some kind of food poisoning, some died from it, but nobody was sure from what, the numbers were never compiled and the press rarely reported anything. Food poisoning is a big deal now and gets a lot of attention from everyone.

In order for it to be a "Big deal" people in droves have to get sick from eating the exact same thing. Not just one or two people here and there.
From a business viewpoint, the last thing any company wants is for anyone to get sick (er, any large amount of people) because then too many people are afraid to buy their product(s).
The profits vanish.

Ugh... I'd better buy some chicken for a regular price and make any sandwich at home. $0.88 for a package, really?? It's too cheap. Too cheap to be high-quality.

Just cook any chicken (raw and previously cooked) products properly and you won't have to worry about salmonella.

Minimum 165° Fahrenheit /75° Celsius

Just assume that all chicken products are contaminated with salmonella, especially processed ones unless you personally know where they came from.

You could go a bit lower in temp on a solid piece of chicken breast but for ground chicken products like Jane's don't even think about it.

Get a digital thermometer if you don't have one already.

You know that deal a few months back, it was a combination of a front page sale + coupon to get that price. Those boxes regular retail is $10 each.

Jane's chicken products are very heavily discounted. I've never seen a brand so determined to bury itself. With this recall, I don't know if I want to bother buying the $6.99 900gram full cooked chicken wings at Price Choppers.
