Banquet Pot Pies linked to salmonella cases

Six cases of salmonella poisoning were reported in September in Minnesota as a result of eating Banquet chicken and turkey pot pies, according to the Minnesota Department of Health. Health officials have warned people not to eat the pot pies.

The pot pies in question, which are sold in the frozen sections of grocery stores, have a code number that begins with the number 5009, according to KSTP. Officials have said to ignore the “best by? dates on the boxes in these cases.

135 cases of salmonella have been reported nationally since June, but the six Minnesota cases all occurred in September, according to WCCO.

Diarrhea, fever, stomach cramps and vomiting are some of the prominent symptoms of salmonella poisoning, according to WCCO.

ConAgra foods, the manufacturer of the pot pies, voluntarily stopped their production of the pot pies Tuesday at their Missouri plant.
