Salmonella infections have been linked to chicken from Ruby's Pantry pop-up locations, according to officials from the Minnesota Department of Health and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

Authorities are investigating at least four cases of salmonellosis. Four people, one Minnesotan and three Wisconsin residents, became sick after eating a frozen breaded chicken product from a pop-up location.

A raw breaded chicken product that might look fully cooked was given to Ruby's Pantry customers without cooking instructions or labels. Anyone who has an unlabeled chicken item from Ruby's Pantry is asked to throw it out or cook it so the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
