Due to the suspected presence of salmonella in select lots of chicken, a recall is in effect for certain brands, Skessuhorn reports.

All of the chickens in question have come from Reykjagarður, and are sold under the brand names Holta, Kjörfugl and Krónan. The distribution of chicken has been temporarily halted, and a recall is in effect.

The recall itself is very specific: it does not apply to all chickens from these companies, but rather those bearing the lot numbers 001-19-36-3-02 and 001-19-37-3-17 that have a packing date of October 9th and 10th and October 11th, respectively. This applies not just to whole chickens, but also parts such as breasts, thighs and wings.

Consumers who have already bought these chickens are advised to return these products to the store from which they were purchased.

If you must eat chicken, the safest bet against spreading salmonella is to cook it thoroughly, to thoroughly wash all surfaces and hands that the raw chicken has touched, and to avoid cross-contamination between raw or undercooked chicken and other foods.
