What’s the Problem?
June 8, 2018 – The 4 people reportedly got sick after consuming Ruby’s Pantry chicken products which appeared to be fully cooked but are actually raw, according to a news release by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). The products were sold at Ruby’s Pantry without cooking instructions or labels stating they were raw.
What Happens When You Eat Raw Chicken?
Raw chicken is not safe to eat and could lead to severe food poisoning, especially for children, the elderly, and others with compromised immune systems. Chicken should always be cooked thoroughly so that it is steaming hot all the way through before serving. To check, cut into the thickest part of the meat and ensure that it is steaming hot with no pink meat and that the juices run clear.
Signs and symptoms of salmonella infection include:
- Abdominal cramps
- Blood in the stool
Ruby’s Pantry is cooperating with the investigation, and the company has agreed not to distribute any more unlabeled chicken products. A list of all the Wisconsin and Minnesota cities that have a Ruby’s Pantry is available at the MDH website.
