Shoppers Who Have Become Ill After Eating Chicken

Britons who have become ill after eating cooked chicken have called for additional things to be added to the nationwide recall list after more than 100 other products were removed from shelves amid a salmonella scare.

Shoppers have reported being violently sick after ingesting chicken wraps and sandwiches, including ones not presently included on the UK Food Standards Agency’s (UKFSA) recall list.

The authority issued the inventory of 113 products after salmonella was detected at the Cranswick foot processing plant in Hull during a routine internal inspection.

It sparked 12 other food sellers, including supermarkets, coffee shops and convenience stores, to remove items from their shelves, with Co-Op, Amazon, Costa and Starbucks the latest big-name food chains to be impacted by the contamination scare.

Pret, Sainsbury’s, Aldi, Leon, M&S and Waitrose also quit selling some or all cooked poultry products due to the scare, which has seen products even grabbed from shoppers’ hands in some cases.

Tesco released a checklist of cooked poultry products it warns could be affected. Tesco’s list of 14 items includes plain chicken breast slices, BBQ breast pieces and flammed grilled chicken thins.

Shoppers told a newspaper outlet how they became ill after eating chicken products in recent days. One, Peter McKernan, 41, bought a Southern Style Fried Chicken Wrap from a Southern Co-Op in Weymouth on Wednesday evening.

The father of three, who runs a window cleaning business, consumed the wrap soon after and then was violently sick overnight, and believes that he suffered from a kind of food poisoning, though the product doesn’t presently feature on the recall list. He said that he bought the wrap at about 7 pm and by 12.20 am he was being violently sick.

He said that he woke up with a stomach ache and that he then started throwing up and had a bad tummy, and that he was up and down until about 4.15 pm and he was going to a charity garden party at Buckingham Palace the following day which he didn’t enjoy because he still felt unwell.

Mr McKeran urged Co-Op to look into other chicken products. Southern Co-Op has been contacted for comment.

Caroline Austin said her four-year-old son Harvey fell ill after eating pre-cooked chicken from a supermarket, which she didn’t name.

She said he was violently sick with an upset stomach during the night, but that neither she nor his brother was unwell.

I’m not ill after eating chicken, I’m just sick of eating chicken that’s genetically modified so it becomes bland and rubbery. Chicken is highly processed and it’s garbage food, and if people have got sick from eating the chicken, imagine how the poor chickens must have felt being killed so that we can eat a chicken wrap.

Sadly now everyone wants cheap convenience food, so to do that you need mega factories to produce it, but by doing that you scale up production and contamination risk, and I suspect there’s a bit of fowl play going on here!

However, Chicken, eggs and salmonella have been associated for ages, and now there’s an outbreak of it everyone goes crazy because they’ve got sick. To be honest, I don’t normally get sick eating it, I get sick at looking at the prices of it.

There’s no surprise that people are saying that they have got ill eating it because now I can hear the sound of the lawyers sharpening their quells as the media induce hysteria.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
