The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issued a health alert over concerns that a Hungry-Man frozen dinner may be contaminated with salmonella from whey powder.
The dinner that is being recalled is:
- 15.25-oz. individual frozen microwavable dinners with "HUNGRY MAN CHIPOTLE BBQ SAUCED BONELESS CHICKEN WYNGZ" printed on the label and bearing a best buy date of 9/6/19.
The frozen meal has establishment number "EST. P138" or "P-138" on the side of the box and the frozen meals were shipped to retail locations in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Virginia, warned FSIS.

Salmonella's most common symptoms are abdominal cramps, fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated food and diarrhea.
However, FSIS pointed out that there have been no confirmed reports of any illness related to the Hungry-Man meals.
