Another reason not to like these things.....

(CNN) -- Federal authorities are warning consumers not to eat Banquet frozen turkey and chicken pot pies or similar generic store-brand products because they may have caused an outbreak of salmonella poisoning.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention began investigating last week after receiving reports of illness. By Friday, it had identified the pot pies as a potential source of the salmonella that sickened more than 100 people in dozens of states.
The CDC sent inspectors Monday to the manufacturer, ConAgra Foods Inc.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service on Tuesday advised consumers not to eat the pot pies "until we are able to determine the source, products and potential production dates of contamination and to verify proper cooking instructions for these not-ready-to-eat products."
ConAgra voluntarily stopped making the pies Tuesday, The Associated Press reported.
