Chicken Kiev 1998

An outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium was detected by identification of several isolates that shared a single, previously rare, pulse-field gel electrophoresis pattern. A case control study implicated a frozen, Chicken Kiev product. Salmonella Typhimurium was isolated from product samples. Microwave cooking times and temperature instructions that were provided on the package label were likely inadequate to kill Salmonella.
