The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Illinois-based Aspen Foods is recalling nearly two million pounds of raw, frozen, stuffed and breaded chicken products due to possible salmonella contamination.

A link has been determined between the products and three people in Minnesota getting infected with salmonella.

These products were shipped nationwide under several brand names and have the establishment number 'P-1358' on the USDA inspection mark.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and others with weakened immune systems.

Earlier this week, in a separate massive recall, the USDA announced Barber Foods of Maine is recalled 1.7 million pounds of raw, frozen chicken products, also over salmonella concerns.
