Frozen pot pies alert issued

Three cases of salmonellosis in Washington state may be linked to frozen pot pies. It is believed the three cases are part of a national outbreak that has sickened more than 100 people in several states.

The Washington cases are potentially linked to products made by ConAgra, most of which were sold under the Banquet brand name.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has issued a health alert advising consumers not to eat ConAgra frozen pot pies with "P9" in the identification code printed on the box. Health officials say the pot pies are being sold under Banquet and store-brand names, each containing the "P9"; identifier.

The three Washington state cases were in Yakima, Snohomish and Spokane counties.

Symptoms of salmonellosis may include diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, fever, chills, abdominal discomfort and vomiting.
