The Associated Press has reported that Con Agra, maker of Banquet pot pies, has voluntarily stopped production due to reports of consumers contracting salmonella. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have reportedly investigated numerous cases in Wisconsin, Missouri and Pennsylvania. The Banquet pot pies under investigation are of the chicken and turkey varieties and have a “P-9” code printed on the side of the box above the use-by date indicating they are from the Missouri plant which is the suspected source of the problem. Con Agra has a history of selling salmonella tainted products to consumers. Earlier this year there were mass reports of salmonella tainted peanut butter made by Con Agra which caused consumers to become ill and, reportedly in some cases caused death. The CDC has not reported any deaths to date linked to the tainted Banquet pot pies.
