Several people have been hospitalized with kidney failure after taking ill due to eating contaminated Costco chicken salads. As of this point, where the contaminated elements came from is still being investigated. However, if you have a Costco chicken salad in your fridge, you are advised to discard the product.
Specifically speaking, the concerns revolve around chicken salads with the package number 37719. But, do you want to be the person who discovers any unknown numbers? I know I wouldn’t be eating any of their salads. Sorry.
These days, most of our food comes from somewhere else in the world. We no longer farm, and we do not control where the specific items that make up a dish come from. The risk for contamination is great, and quite terrifying. One mistake from a worker in any part of the world can cause you your life these days. Frankly I find this risk terrifying.
